Set Fire to The Rain

Set Fire to The Rain is a 2011 song that was originally a hit for British singer-songwriter Adele and is the coronation song and debut single for season 6 Voice USA winner Josh Kaufman.

Adele versionEdit

This song was the third single off of Adele's second album 21. It hit number 1 in various countries including the United States, Poland, Canada, and France. The live version of this song, which is featured on the 2011 concert DVD Live at The Royal Albert Hall, earned Adele a Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards on February 10, 2013.

Josh Kaufman versionEdit

Josh performed this song on the Voice's final performance show on May 19, 2014 and was released afterwards. However, fans of the show complained about not being able to find the song on iTunes. A glitch ended up affecting sales of the song on iTunes, resulting in it peaking at number 20, which had fans of his worried because of contestants Christina Grimmie of Team Adam and Jake Worthington of Team Blake each doing better then him on iTunes. However, the glitch didn't effect Josh's victory.

Chart positionEdit

While Adele's version was a global hit, Josh's version did nicely, peaking at number 28 on the Hot Digital Songs chart.
