The Voice UK 2016: Kevin Simm's winners song is in the Top 5 already

The Voice - Episode 14

Kevin Simm's The Voice UK's winner's song has made it to the top 5 of the download charts already.

It was Kevin won who The Voice UK last night, releasing his version of the winner's track straight after the show.

It's only the second time in The Voice UK history that we've got a proper single from the champion.

In past years the winners just uploaded one of their performances from the show to iTunes with poor results.

The week after they won, Leanne Mitchell's Run To You was at Number 45, Andrea Begley managed Number 30 with My Immortal while Jermain Jackman got to Number 75 with And I Am Telling You.

Last year Stevie McCrorie had success with his cover of Lost Stars, officially charting at Number 6.

This year, bosses have got themselves an ORIGINAL track: ‘All You Good Friends’ is the name and it's been produced by Peter-John Vettese, behind hits by other artists including Sia and James Bay.

Kevin's version of the single has already been made available to download and stream, with money going to charity.

At the time of writing the track is at Number 4 on the iTunes download charts less than 12 hours after release.

However there's a long way to go yet until the official chart next Friday.

Stevie last year made it to Number 1 but fell to Number 6 by the end of the week.

The final chart will also include streaming figures as well as download sales.

But it's looking like a very strong start for Kevin, who had been the favourite to win throughout the show.
