Leah McFall may not have even landed herself a record deal yet but last weekend she took to the stage to perform for thousands of fans at London’s Wireless Festival.
Will.i.am promised to stand by her when she missed out on winning The Voice last month and he’s been true to his word so far. The Black Eyed Peas star whisked Leah off to LA just days after the series ended and spent weeks working on her new material and debut album along with some of his best producers and songwriters.
On Sunday he invited the Belfast born singer to join him on stage as he performed for the huge crowd at the music festival and the pair showcased his hit single ‘Bang Bang’ from The Great Gatsby soundtrack.
They had previously performed the track on the final of the BBC series and the version received such amazing feedback that Will hinted they may release the version at a future date.
Fans seemed to love Leah’s performance on Sunday and one tweeted after the concert saying:
“Wireless Fest looked awesome and then Leah Mcfall came and the awesomeness tripled”
“will I am and leah went off at wireless!!! Such a good day! Great beats!!!”
A third said:
“Great time at wireless! Jay Z, JT Rihanna, Will I AM, Leah and Nas! Absolutely amazing.”
Leah enjoyed the experience too and tweeted her fans to say:
“This just happened. Performing at wireless with @iamwill ”
“Had a lovely wee day yesterday meeting the beautiful people supporting me ☺ thank you”
It didn’t stop there either, because after the festival Leah and Will hooked up again and he whisked her into a studio in London to finish work on the songs they wrote in LA. Leah tweeted at the start of the week, saying:
“Studio. London. With @iamwill 😁 finishing the magic.”
We can wait to hear the ‘heart melting’ and ‘hilarious’ tunes that they’ve been boasting about!
