Leona Lewis opens Hackney Weekend in London

Leona Lewis has opened BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend at Hackney Marshes in east London.

The singer was the first artist to play on the main stage which will see an appearance from headliner Jay-Z.

"It was really fun," she said after her performance. "I was quite nervous at the beginning but just kind of got into my stride. It was so cool just to do it on my home turf."
