UK's 2013 Christmas No.1 Song Written by an Estonian

At the top of the British charts this week is X Factor winner Sam Bailey's debut single "Skyscraper." Orginally written by Estonian singer Kerli Koiv in 2011 with Toby Gad and Lindy Robbins,  the track came to the attention of music producers in the UK and has now become one of the fasting selling singles of the year. Sam Bailey, 36, is a former prison officer who is now scheduled to be one of Beyonce's support acts during her UK tour in February 2014.

I'm sure Kerli, Toby, Lindy and Sam will all be having a very Merry Christmas this year!
