We haven’t seen any real success stories from The Voice UK so far, but that might be about to change, in a rather unexpected way. Do you remember the stroppy teen from the first series, Becky Hill? She didn’t make the final, but after the show she started recording with various UK producers, including MNEK and Rudimental. She ended up featuring on a track by Wilkinson (Afterglow, no.8 in 2013) and she signed to Parlophone a few months ago. She’s also on Rudimental’s new single, Powerless, and often performs live with them. Like all these new artists trying to launch their careers through a feature, we’ll have to wait and see if her solo music is as good, but she’s certainly in a better position than Leanne Mitchell.
