A one-hit wonder from the late '70s, Samantha Sang made her professional singing debut because of Barry and Maurice Gibb.
Born in Australia in 1951, Sang entered the music world in 1978 singing "Emotion." Unfortunately for the singer, this would be her only pop/rock hit. The song was written by the popular songwriting duo Barry and Maurice Gibb, who also had their own band, the Bee Gees. The song "Emotion" was on the album of the same name. Besides this song, the album included favorites from other well-known '70s soft and pop/rock singers, including Eric Carmen's "Change of Heart," Denny Randell's "You Keep Me Dancing," and Arty Simon's "But If She Moves You." The Bee Gees also had two of their hits, "Charade" and "Love of a Woman" on the album. Sang has also provided backup vocals for artists such as David Wolfert, Francis Lai, and Carole Bayer Sager.
Although only popular because of her "Emotion" song, Sang is a very talented vocalist. In 1996 "Emotion" was on the Bee Gees album release Soul of the Bee Gees. She also performed background vocals for Eric Carmen's Definitive Collection. Despite the fact that Samantha Sang has only one solo song to her credit, she took n the music industry by storm, performing with such singing groups as the Bee Gees and Eric Carmen. ~ Kim Summers, Rovi
