Alexandra Burke- Hallelujah

January 3, 2009

‘The X Factor’ winner Alexandra Burke has raced to Number One in the UK singles chart, nabbing the coveted Christmas top spot with her cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’.
Burke’s ‘Hallelujah’ became the fastest-selling single by a female solo artist, with 576,000 copies shifted during Christmas. For the first time at Christmas the same song is at Number One and Number Two, as Jeff Buckley’s cover entered on download sales alone.
To add a further twist, the song’s creator Cohen, who returned to tour this year, entered the chart with his original version at Number 36.
