Legendary diva Whitney Houston is planning to duet with British singer Leona Lewis in a bid to boost her comeback, according to reports.
Houston is back on stage this year after a lengthy break to battle alleged drug addictions, and a new album is being planned for release later in 2008.
Now her mentor, music mogul Clive Davis, wants to give her a helping hand - by teaming her with Bleeding Love pop sensation Lewis, reports the New York Post.
Since winning British talent show 'The X Factor' in 2006, Lewis has stormed the charts in both Britain and the US and drawn numerous comparisons to Houston and Mariah Carey.
But the 23-year-old will have to overcome her nervous disposition if she wants to perform with her idol - she suffers from stress-related chronic throat problems, which doctors have confirmed can only be cured permanently by surgery.
