Sam was thrilled to work with Nathaniel Levingston of “I Manage Stars” on this project along with the highly talented studio genius of Gemini Musiq. Nathaniel wrote the lyrics and with the help of Gemini Musiq on the sound board, Sam was able to lay down the entire track in less than 2 hours of studio time.
While Sam has been working in studio’s since 10 years of age and has a home studio of his own where he has recorded many cover songs, it was a real pleasure working with such amazingly talented producers in a professional setting such as this.
The song tells the story of the desire to give unconditional love “The World” to the girl of his dreams but knowing that it’s impossible to accomplish that kind of selfless giving of himself all at once he will just have to give her ONE STAR AT A TIME…..
“Baby I can’t give you the world but I promise I’ll try one star at a time”
“You’re the only person that my heart believes in; everybody else has only let me down,
My heart on the ground, not where I want to be,
You’re the only one I ever want to run to, I don’t trust too many people with my heart,
It’s forever…… That’s what you promised me!!!!!”
Sam and his entire camp are very excited about this new song and feels it’s truly a hit. Presales began just yesterday and are already doing amazingly well and the reception from radio personalities as far away as New York and Miami have already proclaimed it a hit!
Official release date is June 26th and will be available on virtually all online stores.

Sam had a load of butterflies in his stomach as he waited for his chance to impress the crowd.
As he made his way to the stage, all eyes and ears were on him. Sam brightened up the night as he opened with his most popular song “Don’t Stop Believin'”.
The audience loved him and complimented his big strong voice when he walked back to his table. Many followed him and continued speaking with him.
There was a lot of amazing, undiscovered talent that was showcased at the gig. The entire feel of The Landing Lounge was laid back and entertaining as men and women, young and old came for a chance for their voices to be heard.
Sam was so grateful for this opportunity and the only youngster to perform for the evening. He was especially proud to meet the owner of the Raddison Hotel at the end of his performances which included four different songs.
