Sam is a perfect example of determination and positivity and was always going to be a star! Having achieved his first chart position with his first single in 2008 he said:-
“I WILL BE A WELL KNOWN SINGER, and I will fight for it until I am blue in the face! I will fight until the day I die. I will help people through my music, I will do extraordinary things, I will travel and tour all around the world. I will grow a big fan base, I will perform wherever the hell I want to perform. Nothing will stop me. Nothing. School, and the tough times of school, have made me want this dream even more. I will achieve it. And seeing 'Chart Positions like this', make me feel that I'm worth while, and that I am on this earth for something. I know of adults that forget their dreams and they settle for second or third best. Not me”. Sam 2008
