Sam Bailey

X-Factor Winner 2013

Solo artist Sam Bailey is best known for winning X Factor in 2013 where she sang Beyoncé’s ‘Listen’ and got a standing ovation from the judges and the crowd. She also performed a duet with Nicole Scherzinger. Since then, Sam had a UK Christmas No.1 single with ‘Skyscraper’ and saw her debut album ‘The Power of Love’ hit the top spot in 2014.

Sam’s subsequent nationwide tour of the UK in January and February 2015 was a sell-out and was well received by critics.

From an early age music was always Sam’s passion but was never given a break in the industry instead embarking on a career as a prison officer. However, this all changed in 2013 when she entered the tenth series of The X Factor her incredible vocals stunned all four judges and she received a standing ovation.

She captured the hearts of the nation each week throughout the series and her duet with judge Nicole Scherzinger was spine tingling. She was crowned the winner of the show in December 2013 and her debut single ‘Skyscraper’ then claimed the coveted Christmas number one spot. Since then she has released two studio albums to critical acclaim and continues to produce new music to a high quality.

With a voice described by Gary Barlow as “incredible”, Sam Bailey is ideal for performing at large corporate events and functions. Her outstanding vocal talent, charming personality and extensive repertoire will impress guests and give any event a huge lift. In May 2015, Sam performed in Birmingham and London with legendary singer Engelbert Humperdinck who – like Sam – is from Leicester.

Engelbert said: “I am delighted to have Sam join me on the road. I spoke to Sam before the finals of X Factor and I promised her then that we would one day share a stage. I’m happy to be fulfilling that promise.”

Sam said it was an honour to join a true legend on stage and performing for his army of fans.

Extremely versatile she has also appeared in the musical Chicago alongside some of the biggest West End stars and is set to appear in the musical version of Kay Mellor’s popular comedy Fat Friends. She has also delighted audiences in pantomime in her home city of Leicester.

Sam was extremely easy to work with and was incredibly laid back, happy to mingle with the audience too. Her voice is just flawless and she completely wowed the crowd. It was a pleasure to have Sam at our event and we hope she enjoyed it too! – Alice Holmes, Nomura
