Tags: , , , , ,

Gates was runner-up on the first series of Pop Idol in February 2002. Despite not winning the competition, he was soon signed up by Simon Cowell to the BMG label, which Cowell works for. Gates’ first single, a cover of “Unchained Melody” entered the UK Singles Chart at number one. The single went double-platinum in the UK, and was voted 2002’s The Record of the Year by ITV viewers. This was followed by another number-one single, “Anyone of Us (Stupid Mistake)”. His third single, “The Long and Winding Road”, a duet with Will Young, also reached number one. His fourth, “What My Heart Wants to Say” reached number five. The now-defunct Smash Hits magazine dedicated 7 November 2002 as International Gates Day. His debut album, What My Heart Wants to Say achieved first week sales of over a hundred thousand,[citation needed] and eventually earned double platinum status in the UK. Gates has sold just over three million music singles in the UK, including the second and sixth best selling singles in 2002 (“Unchained Melody”, which sold 1.3 million, and “Anyone of Us (Stupid Mistake)”, which sold 570000) and the second best selling single in 2003 (“Spirit in the Sky”, 550000 copies). I’ve been letting you down, down Girl I know I’ve been such a fool Giving in to temptation I should’ve played it cool The situation got out of hand I hope you understand (Chorus) It can happen to Anyone of us, anyone you think of Anyone can fall Anyone can hurt someone they love Hearts will break ‘Cause
