Leona Lewis tells the Daily Star:

"I'm just so proud of it (Happy) , 'cos I wrote it, and to be associated with a film like Precious, which is about trying to overcome troubles and trials in your life. I'm glad that someone got that message,"

"I only saw a half-hour clip of the film Avatar, it's not finished yet but it's insane,  I heard the song - great lyrics, very, very epic. So I went in and I did it. And then they played it to James and he phoned me up and said: 'Oh, my God. I love you!' He's so cool. I had this perception that he was going to be totally untouchable and unreachable. But he's just like your nice uncle. He's lovely."
Leona's song 'My Hands' from her new album 'Echo' has also been chosen as the theme song for the upcomming new Final Fantasy game.
