Sam Bailey

Sam Bailey was born in Bexley, East London. Growing up, she enjoyed singing for her friends and family but never believed she was destined for stardom. 

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. Her first X Factor audition lead Gary Barlow to describe her voice as "incredible".

Sam's debut single 'Skyscraper' and album 'The Power of Love' both topped the UK charts. Earlier on this year she embarked on her first ever UK headline tour, selling out venues across the country.

Sam blew us away with this stunning vocal performance.
