Leona Lewis hosted a fan-led Q&A on her official Twitter page this evening and gave some fantastic words of wisdom on various topics.

Lewis, who is currently starring in the Broadway production of Cats, added that she still has some career goals to achieve: "I love to expand & use my creativity in other areas as well as music. It's important to fuel the flames of your passion..."
