Sing My Heart Out
Sing My Heart Out is the second album by The X Factor winner Sam Bailey. Sam Bailey is a platinum selling artist, whose debut album The Power Of Love was the fastest selling album of 2014 in the UK. Sam Bailey is now firmly established as one of the finest singers in the UK and continues to gain fans from all around the world with her "down to earth" approach to everyone she meets. This, together with her considerable talent, makes her one of Britain's favorite personalities. Born in Bexley, East London, Sam enjoyed singing for her friends and family growing up but never believed she was destined for stardom. When she was younger, Sam entered talent competitions but always wanted to impress people by herself, rather than being talked up by family and friends. However, her family did have a major influence on her musical career - her grandfather was a singer in a group called The Four Vinos and her father was also in a band and she was often in the company of musicians. One of her earliest success stories was winning a Search For A Star talent competition in Crayford Town Hall, Bexley as a 16-year-old. She went on to attend Bexley Arts College and Dartford's Miskin Theatre to further develop her talent. Though singing was a passion, Sam admits that her first love in life was football. She played professionally for a number of clubs including Millwall Lionesses, West Ham, Crystal Palace and London Women. Before she stole the hearts of the UK by winning the tenth series of The X Factor in December of 2013, Sam worked as a prison officer at HM Prison Gartree as well as performing on cruise ships, in clubs and at music festivals for several years. Under the mentorship of Sharon Osborne she became a clear favorite on the show, dazzling audiences and judges alike with her stunning voice and natural stage presence. Following her triumph, her debut single, "Skyscraper", reached Christmas number one and her debut album, The Power Of Love stormed to the top of the UK album charts in 2014. Sing My Heart Out is produced by Steve Dorff (Kenny Rogers, Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, George Strait, Vanessa Williams) and Ben Adams (Robin Thicke, Craig David, JLS, Amelia Lily, Marcus Feehily, Union J, Alexandra Burke).
