Faith Hill might re-enter UK top 10

American singer Faith Hill is very much happy about her 2001 single “There You’ll Be” as it might re-enter the top 10 of the UK Singles Charts this Sunday. The commotion is because of a 19 year-old contestant of the hit British television counterpart of American Idol, “The X-Factor”. She sang Faith Hill’s song which peaked at #3 way back in 2001. It immediately peaked at #4 on the iTunes download chart.

Amy Connolly who is a contestant on the X-Factor managed to get Girls Aloud’s Cheryl Cole on tears after which she dedicated the song to her father who raised her single-handedly. 

The performance attracked downloaders to buy Hill’s song. Of course, this sort of thing is far from unprecented – Amy Winehouse and Christina Aguilera, among others, enjoyed similar sales boosts during last year’s X Factor, while Mint Royale’s ‘Singin’ In The Rain’ reached number one in June after a contestant on Britain’s Got Talent danced onto it.

Here’s the performance video:
