X Factor winner Sam Bailey to play His Majesty’s Theatre – and local act could be the support

X Factor winner and vocal powerhouse Sam Bailey is once again taking to the stage to showcase her incredible singing voice, and will perform at His Majesty’s Theatre next year.

Gold selling artist Sam will embark on her Sing My Heart Out tour in 2017, to coincide with her upcoming album of the same name. She will come to Aberdeen on April 4, and is giving local artists the chance to be her support act for a night.

Talented singers from the area will be given the opportunity to send in videos showcasing their vocal abilities prior to the show, for Sam to review. She will then personally choose the act that makes the cut, giving them the chance to perform in front of hundreds of people at HMT. 

A spokeswoman for Aberdeen Performing Arts said: “We’re delighted to have such a talented performer coming to HMT. Sam’s voice is out of this world and she is bound to put on a wonderful show. Her vocals and down-to-earth attitude won tens of thousands of people over when she appeared on the X Factor.

“On another note, Sam’s performance in Aberdeen is great news for local singers who have the chance to be her support act in what has the potential to become a career-defining moment.”

More than a million people voted for Sam in the final of the 2013 X Factor. The show launched her into the spotlight, transforming her from prison guard to pop star. Her hit single Skyscraper became the UK Christmas Number 1, and in 2014, she embarked on her solo sell-out tour. So far in 2016, Sam has been busy on stage playing Mama Morton in the UK tour of the award-winning Broadway show Chicago.

She has been working tirelessly on her new album Sing My Heart Out, and has travelled to LA to record tracks with the acclaimed music composer and icon Steve Dorff. She has also teamed up with former A1 band member and singer/songwriter Ben Adams, who has been working with Sam on many of the songs for her album.
