The Voice UK runner up Tyler James makes Top 40 with 'Higher Love'

Tyler James (The Voice UK)

The runner up of The Voice UK Tyler James has out charted winner Leanne Mitchell.

Leanne failed to make the Top 40 last weekend with her winner's single, a cover of Whitney Houston's Run To You. The song charted at a rather disappointing Number 45.

Tyler James, who finished as runner up on the show behind Leanne, managed to out do her with his cover of Higher Love this week.

The song was never released as a single, instead it was put on sale for download as part of a compilation album from all of the semi-finalists.

But enough people purchased the track in its own right to make the son chart at Number 39 last night.

A number of other artists also entered the Top 100 with their songs from the album.

Max Milner is at 63 with Free Fallin', while Bo Bruce is at 69 with Running Up That Hill. Vince Kidd scraped into the Top 100 at 97 with his unique take on Like A Virgin.
