(US) Last night, Sawyer Fredericks officially became the winner on the eighth season of NBC’s Emmy award -winning The Voice. His new single “Please” (written by Ray Lamontagne) immediately skyrocketed to #2 on iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart and #1 on the Top Rock Songs Chart. Get it here.
Sawyer broke many records for The Voice as he had 14 songs in the iTunes Top 200 Singles Chart this week (new show record), each time he performed during the show’s live rounds his single reached Top 10 on iTunes Singles Chart (new show record) and his first day sales of “Please” came close to breaking the first day number of singles sold in the history of show. These accomplishments are not surprising as Sawyer has sold nearly 1 million singles in total during his time on the show – at his current pace he’s quickly on his way to becoming the highest selling artist ever on The Voice. Now, he immediately heads into the studio to begin recording with Republic Records. Be on the lookout for more music and news very soon.
Sawyer Fredericks grew up on an 88-acre farm in Upstate New York. His shyness belies an intense empathy and vibrantly robust voice honed by performing weekly at a local farmer’s market and cutting his own independent debut locally. Upon his debut on The Voice, he quickly enchanted audiences everywhere. Joining “Team Pharrell,” Sawyer’s natural talent and diligence consistently shined, eventually taking him to the top.
