The guitarist and founder of Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page has recalled the time when he took part in the Olympic closing ceremony in Beijing along with the former professional footballer David Beckham and the talented British singer Leona Lewis.

The legendary musician Page has referred to one of the high points of his career as the day when he performed along with the gorgeous singer Leona Lewis at the Olympic closing ceremony in 2008.

Armed with the double-decker bus, ballet, hip hop dancers, and one of the most iconic footballers of all the time, David Beckham, in the ceremony, Page said that it was, without a doubt, a significant moment in his life.

Performed ‘Whole Lotta Love‘ together with Lewis in Beijing, Jimmy remembered how intoxicated he was when he first watched Leona’s performances on The X Factor. He added that Leona Lewis’ classy delivery of the song that day was sultry and impeccable and her visual performance was dazzling.

Here is what Jimmy Page said in his latest Instagram post:

“On this day in 2008, I performed at the Olympic closing ceremony in Beijing where the baton was passed on, so to speak, to London 2012.

The cast members had been secretly rehearsing in London and Beijing.⁣

Armed with the double-decker bus, ballet, hip hop dancers and David Beckham, Leona Lewis and I performed ‘Whole Lotta Love‘ which was augmented by Philip Shepherd’s string arrangement and Penderecki-like swoops.⁣

Along with many, I had been intoxicated by Leona’s performances on The X Factor and I was curious as to how she would approach ‘Whole Lotta Love’ – her classy delivery was sultry and impeccable and her visual performance, dazzling, to say the least!⁣

This was, without doubt, one of the high points of my career and it was one happy man who performed with such a remarkable talent.⁣”
