Lewis + Beckham To Close Beijing Olympics

British star LEONA LEWIS and soccer ace DAVID BECKHAM have reportedly been lined up to star in the closing ceremony of the Beijing Olympics in China this summer (08).
To mark China's official handover of the global sporting event to Britain for the London 2012 Games, the L.A. Galaxy player will make an appearance while Bleeding Love hitmaker Lewis will sing to an estimated audience of over 150 million.
An source for the London 2012 Games says, "Leona and Beckham have accepted the invitation to sprinkle some stardust on the show.
"They epitomise what London 2012 is about. Leona is a young global star from London who has risen from nothing. Becks has glamour and a profile around the world. He was also a key figure in the bid to win the Games for London."
