Lewis Offered $2million Fee For Gig

British singing sensation LEONA LEWIS is reportedly set to score a huge $2 million (GBP1million) fee for any future personal appearances - putting her in the same league as legendary former BEATLE SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY.
The Bleeding Love star has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame since winning U.K. talent show The X Factor in 2006 - and can demand huge amounts of cash to perform intimate gigs for wealthy fans.
The star has been offered a $2 million (GBP1 million) personal appearance fee to play a small set for an unknown bidder, according to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "Leona is one of the most sought after stars around. She has little say in the fee charges - big money sponsors literally name their fee and her management respond accordingly.
"She is adamant much of the profit goes straight back to her favourite charities."
Lewis, who has hit the top spot in both the U.K. and U.S. album charts with her debut LP Spirit, is reportedly worth $12 million (GBP6 million) - but gives most of her money away to charity organisations.
