For the new version of RUTH to have charted at no 6 in the official UK singles chart is a remarkable achievement and shows just what can happen when Kate’s music gets a wider exposure. It’s more remarkable when you compare its chart place to say the George Michael single which he performed live on the same show and is getting a lot of radio support. Kate’s single, as hoped, charted high on the iTunes chart and midweeks immediately after the Olympic Closing Ceremony but it has sold consistently all week, with as many people downloading it almost a whole week later, giving her another top ten single.
This now means that Kate has had top 20 singles in the 70′s, 80′s, 90′s, 00′s and now the teens! Well done Kate, it’s a great new version and deserves its top ten place!
And The Whole Story is up from no. 125 last week to no.21. Lotsa people hearing Kate for the first time!
