|Will Young singles chronology|
"Anything Is Possible" is a pop song, co-written by Chris Braide and Cathy Dennis for the winner of the first series of Pop Idol in the UK. The song was recorded by the final three acts in the show, Will Young, Gareth Gates and Darius Danesh.
The song was performed on Pop Idol in the final by both Young and Gates. Young went on to win the show, and released "Anything Is Possible" as a double A-side single, along with "Evergreen", which was also recorded by the final three and performed by the final two. The single went straight to the number one spot in the UK Singles Chart and stayed there for three consecutive weeks, only to be knocked off the top spot by Gates' debut single, "Unchained Melody". It became the fastest-selling debut in UK chart history, selling 403,027 copies on its day of release. It went on to sell over 1,789,000 copies and in the official list of the all-time best-selling singles in the UK issued later that year, it appeared 11th. It was the biggest selling single of the 2000s decade.
The song was included on Young's debut album, From Now On.
Gates' version of the song was also released as a B-side to his single, "Unchained Melody".
