Unless you've been on the Moon for the last 5 months, you will have heard, or atleast watched the enormous Hit TV series Pop Idol. You would also know that William Young won the competition to be crowned the nation's Pop Idol last week.
So for those of you who have been on the Moon or haven't yet heard the full single version that was exclusively aired this week, here's why this single is to be one of the biggest selling single's ever.
Firstly Will's voice has an incredible tone to it and appeals to 7 and 70 year olds alike. His voice is pure soul. Pete Waterman said that he was not a Pop Idol, but simply a Superstar. And he is already being likened to musical greats; Sinarta and Bobby Darrin. Not bad for a 23yr old ex politics student and part-time barman.
The CD is a double A-Side featuring `Evergreen` and `Anything is Possible`. Evergreen was written and produced by the swedish team behind Westlife. It's a mid-tempo ballard with soft lyrics that float like silk upon backing singers during the chorus' and piano and orchestra during the verses. Don't be put off by the Westlife association though, Will makes this song his own and adds his Will-Like flavour throughout, hitting every single note with the power that sends shivers down your spine. It could not be more further away from the westlife original.
The other A-Side; `Anything is Possible` was written by Cathy Dennis and Chris Braide who are behind many a pop chart hit, from Sclub7 to Kylie Minogue's "I can't get you out of my head". The song actually does remind you of something you might find on either CD but again Will adds his own unique flavour. Although it is again a mid-tempo song, it is very different from Evergreen - a more uplifting vibe is introduced with the thought provoking lyrics; "anything is possible, possible, when you believe in me" Once again Wills Voice makes it sound like his own.
