Karise's voice dominates the charts
Mon June 25, 2012 8:57am
THE Voice has sold more than a million singles on iTunes, with Karise Eden producing four gold singles for Universal Music and the show's owners.
Eden, who has eight songs in the ARIA top 40, now has four gold plaques for Stay With Me Baby (No.1), Hallelujah (No.2), I Was Your Girl (No.3) and Nothing's Real But Love (No.11).
The Voice winner isn't the only artist commanding the Australian charts in the afterglow of the final of the ratings juggernaut this week.
Sarah De Bono's Beautiful debuted at No.4, cementing her prospects of a recording deal with Universal, which has the first option on all of the contestants.
Darren Percival's Damage Done also made it into the top 10, while his performance of For Once In My Life landed at No.17. I Believe also hung in the top 40 this week while his duet with Keith Urban of his song Without You put the original back into the charts.
Shooting Star, the song Rachael Leahcar penned for her coach Delta Goodrem, came in at No.31, with her rendition of Smile at No.34.
"Appearing on the ARIA charts means a great deal to an artist as it is a vindication that their music is resonating with people across Australia," ARIA boss Dan Rosen said. "The artists to emerge from The Voice should be extremely proud of this achievement, particularly in breaking the recent international dominance of our singles chart."
Don't be surprised if Lakyn Heperi also ends up on Universal's roster.
Eden recorded a few extra covers last week for her My Journey album, which is out tomorrow, to entice fans who already own the songs she performed during the series.
