Hot off the back of her portrayal of Mama Morton in the critically-acclaimed musical Chicago, X-Factor winner Sam Bailey returns to the stage with her very own live show guaranteed to showcase the former prison-officer’s powerhouse vocals.
Sam was born in Bexley, East London. Growing up, she enjoyed singing for her friends and family but never believed she was destined for stardom.
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 nation by winning the tenth series of The X Factor at Christmas 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.
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 totally ‘down to earth’ approach to everyone she meets. This, together with her considerable talent, makes her one of Britain’s favourite personalities.
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.
