Leona Lewis was once asked to perform a karaoke version of her own song in a Chinese restaurant.
The 27-year-old won the British version of The X Factor in 2006 and has since gone on to become a multi-platinum selling artist.
Leona’s amazing voice gets her noticed everywhere – even when she is trying to enjoy a quiet dinner.
“When I go into a shop, if someone who works there sees me they’ll put on my song,” she revealed to the latest edition of British magazine OK!
“Once I was in a Chinese restaurant and they had karaoke upstairs. I was eating my dinner and they started playing one of my songs. The manager came up and said, ‘You perform, you perform, we have your song!’ in front of the whole restaurant. I was like, ‘Really?’ No [I didn’t do it], how embarrassing!”
Since winning the singing competition, Leona has got used to performing at sold-out venues.
However, it doesn’t always go to plan for the pretty singer.
“The most embarrassing thing for me is when I fell down a lift shaft on stage,” she confessed.
“It was awful.”
