Sam Bailey live needs to be experienced to be truly appreciated. With an abundance of original talent and the ability to deliver almost any classic ballad with raw power and emotion, she certainly knows how to put on a showstopping performance.
In 2013, Bailey auditioned for the tenth series of the British X Factor, singing a rendition of Beyonce’s ‘Listen’. After a powerful performance, she received a standing ovation from the judging panel and breezed through to the next round. Since her first appearance on the show, many have compared her triumphant audition to that of Susan Boyle’s on Britain’s Got Talent. Both unlikely stars went on to capture the heart of the nation.
Bailey continued to stun her audiences and achieved a further standing ovation for her version of ‘Who’s Lovin’ You’ at the “Bootcamp Stage”. Representing the last of the over 25s category, she made it through to the final show where she sang a duet with X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger. After receiving in excess of one million votes over the course of the weekend, Bailey was crowned the winner of the tenth series and signed to Simon Cowell’s Syco Music record company. Her winner’s single ‘Skyscraper’ topped the charts and secured the Christmas number one spot, selling approximately 149,000 copies in its first week of release.
Early in 2014, Bailey started work on her first studio album, ‘The Power of Love’. The record debuted at number one in the UK Album Chart and sold an impressive 72, 644 copies in its first week of release, making it the fastest selling album of 2014 in the UK so far.
The album features a number of classic song covers, including Supertramp’s ‘Lord Is It Mine’, a duet of ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ with Michael Bolton and an original track ‘Treasure’.
To support her debut album, the singer has announced that she will be headlining a 15-date UK tour in 2015. If her performances on the X Factor are anything to go by, Sam Bailey concerts will be nothing short of sensational. If you’re lucky enough to catch a Sam Bailey tour, you can rest assured that you’ll be blown away by her exceptional vocal range.
