Leona Lewis' hopes of touring America have been given a boost - R&B star Toni Braxton is eager to embark on a trek with the British singer.

The Bleeding Love hit-maker had signed up to open for Christina Aguilera on her U.S. summer jaunt, but was left with a free schedule after the Dirrty hit-maker postponed the dates to afford her more rehearsal time.

But now Lewis, who kicks off a solo tour in the U.K. on Friday night, is in talks to team up with Braxton for a string of American concerts later this year.

Braxton says, "I've been talking about touring with Leona in the autumn. This might happen."
