‘IDOL’ WORSHIP!

Will Young's 'Anything Is Possible/Evergreen' proves to be rather popular...

‘POP IDOL’ winner WILL YOUNG has now sold over half a million singles and is on course to break the record for the fastest selling single of all time.

His song ‘Evergreen’/ ‘Anything Is Possible’ has now sold almost 560,000 copies in just two days in the UK, and is on course to sell one million by the time the final chart positions are confirmed on Sunday (March 3).

A chart expert at HMV in London said: “No other UK recording has sold a million copies in first week, and this would make it the fastest selling UK single of all time, ahead of Live Aid’s ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’, which sold 750,000 copies in its week of release and Elton John‘s tribute to Princess Diana, ‘Candle in the Wind’ / ‘Something About the Way You Look Tonight’, which sold 658,000 copies in its first week.”
