Gareth Malone Military Wives Choir
December 20, 2011 by staff
Gareth Malone Military Wives Choir, The Military Wives’ single has become the fastest selling songs for six years, almost guaranteeing it will be the Christmas number one. Gareth Malone’s choir sold more in two days than X Factor winners Little Mix sold last week following their victory in the TV talent contest.
The Wives shifted 242,000 copies of their track Wherever You Are up to last night, figures showed today. The Official Charts Company said the sales tally is the biggest since Shayne Ward’s That’s My Goal in 2005. He sold 313,000 as he too made his bid for the festive chart-topper.
Little Mix, who are currently number one, were thought to be the Military Wives’ only real challenger for the Christmas number one, but the girl group could only achieve 210,000 sales for their single Cannonball last week in the wake of their victory.
It proved to be the worst first-week sale for an X Factor winner since the show’s first series in 2004.
But the only other time an X Factor winner has failed to win the Christmas top spot since the show began was in 2009 after a successful online campaign propelled the band Rage Against the Machine to No?1 ahead of Joe McElderry.
