Encyclopedia > Samantha Sang

Samantha Sang (born August 5, 1953 in Melbourne, Australia) is a singer.


Born Cheryl Gray, she began her singing career at the age of 8 on Australian radio, and during this time she entered and won several talent quests. By the age of 15 she had her first hit record in Australia, with the song "You Made Me What I Am", and she won a "Best Female Vocalist" award. She quickly became a well known celebrity on Australian television but she felt her career was limited if she remained in Australia. She travelled to the United Kingdom and performed with such groups as Herman's Hermits, The Hollies and the Bee Gees. Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees wrote "The Love Of A Woman" for her, and her recording began a hit in some European countries.


By the mid 1970s she had changed her name to Samantha Sang and had moved to the United States where she renewed her acqaintance with the Bee Gees. The Gibb brothers wrote another song for her, which coincided with their huge level of popularity, and the single "Emotion" (with back-up vocals by the Bee Gees) became a major hit worldwide. It reached number 3 on the US charts in 1978, and earned Sang a platinum record. Determined to succeed on her own merits she would not record another Gibb song to capitalise on her success, and chose a disco song, "You Keep Me Dancing" as her next single release. The song did not become a hit, and her career faltered.


In 2004, and residing again in Melbourne, Sang announced that she would return to live performing, and announced that her three albums would be released for the first time on CD.

"Emotion" (529 words)
Samantha started a recording career, and in 1969, had a European hit with "Love of a Woman." The same year, she met Barry Gibb, who suggested that she try a softer vocal approach.
Samantha's real dream was to crack the American market, but somehow, her plans always seemed to fall through.
Samantha was actually given her choice of that song or "Our Love (Don't Throw It All Away)." When she chose "Emotion," "Our Love" was given to Andy Gibb, who had a Top 10 hit with her reject in 1978.
