Leona Lewis: I want to release an aria

Leona Lewis would love to create a girl group with Sia, Stevie Nicks and Alicia Keys.

The 30-year-old singer is currently gearing up for the release of her new record I Am.

But as she prepares for her fifth studio album to hit the shelves, Leona has revealed what else is on her bucket list.

“I've always said I'd love to do a classical album of all my favourite arias and duets with my favourite artists,” Leona said during an impromptu Twitter Q&A session with fans.

Leona showcases her incredible vocal talents on I Am, which she describes as “resilient, raw, powerful, soulful and passionate”.

She has certainly come a long way since winning TV talent show The X Factor back in 2006.

And the star thinks she has found such success due to the undying backing of her fans.

“It's because of the support of my buns that I'm at this place and I couldn't be more thankful for the love u show me (sic),” she wrote.

While Leona has visited a host of countries around the world during her musical career, there are still some places she would like to see.

“I still haven't been to South America so that's somewhere I'd love to visit and perform,” she added.

But Leona may get her opportunity to perform on the continent sooner than she expects, as it’s likely her I Am concert series will kick off in 2016.

“We are putting in dates for early next year which is exciting!” Leona said when asked about tour prospects.

The stunning songstress was also asked about which stars she would collaborate with if she had the chance to create her dream girl group.

And Leona has a few names in mind as to who she would like to team up with.

“My girl band would be me, @sia @stevienicks @aliciakeys,” she tweeted.
