Hit Alert: Passenger’s “Let Her Go” Reaches Top 10 After “The Voice”

It was knocking on the door, and on Monday’s “The Voice,” contestant Cole Vosbury busted that door wide open.

Following Vosbury’s strong cover, Passenger’s breakthrough hit “Let Her Go” has officially advanced in the top ten on iTunes’ US Singles Sales Chart.

An international chart-topper, “Let Her Go” had been flirting with a permanent position in the domestic iTunes Top 10. With explosive momentum, it also reached a peak of number nineteen on Billboard’s Hot 100.

Make no mistake–this song was on the cusp of making a big impact in the United States.

But Vosbury’s performance provided a punch of acceleration. It might not have won him his Knockout round (though he remains in the competition after being “stolen” by Blake Shelton), but it won the hearts of music buyers, who thrust his version into the Top 100 (currently #27) and the original into the Top 10 (currently #7).
