The Voice 2012: Leanne Mitchell’s ‘Run To You’ reaches only 27 in the singles chart
Leanne Mitchell will be disappointed to discover that her debut single is not exactly taking the charts by fire.
The former holiday camp entertainer won The Voice last Saturday night and at midnight, released her debut single to the nation. The track she chose, was her favourite song of the series – Whitney Houston’s ‘Run To You’ – but in Tuesday’s mid week chart, it was revealed that the single had climbed to only number 27.
Only 6,527 had purchased Leanne’s effort, in comparison to a massive 89,195 who downloaded Gary Barlow and The Commonwealth Band’s new song ‘Sing,’ which was written specially for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Mitchell’s near flop must be all the more upsetting for the winner of the BBC series, when compared to fellow finalists Bo Bruce’s EP, which is riding high at number 5 in the album charts.
An insider told The Sun:
“Leanne is the people’s champ but maybe those people aren’t record buyers. She’s an amazing singer but not someone the kids — who download singles — are going to get behind.”
It’s like Joe McElderry all over again!
The rankings are bound to worry Universal Music, who have offered Leanne a record deal as a result of her winning the show. They will now have to market and release an album of songs by the stunning singer and executives may now be concerned about how well that will sell.
We think it all depends on the material she releases next.
