Sam Concepcion Receives Gold Record Award For His Debut Album

Teen Heartthrob Sam Concepcion's self-titled debut album is now certified GOLD! Sam received his Gold Record Award last February 28th on ASAP XV from Universal Records General Manager Kathleen Dy Go after the launch of his current single "Missed You", taken from his latest release, "Pop Class" DVD. Produced by Platinum Producer Ito Rapadas, Sam's debut CD includes the hits "Even If", "I'll Find Your Heart" and "Happy".

Sam instantly captured the hearts of the public when he won in the ABS-CBN talent show “Little Big Star” in 2006. He has won numerous commendations in the short span of time that he has been pursuing his career - a string of Candy Cutie Awards sponsored by Candy Magazine; Nickelodeon’s Pinoy Wannabe Award; Pure N’ Fresh Top Teen Awards’ Top Teen Male Entertainer Award and "Favorite New Artist" in the 3rd MYX Music Awards. He also topbilled STAGES’ production of “High School Musical,” a critical and commercial success, as Troy Bolton. Sam also broke new grounds when he was tasked to sing the theme song “Kung Fu Fighting”of the international animated movie “Kung Fu Panda", such feat made him the first local artist to have sung for Hollywood film company, Dreamworks. In the concert scene, Sam proved why Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano handpicked him to be his successor alongside international recording artist Billy Crawford. On television, Sam was unforgettable as Boy Bawang in the superserye “Super Inggo”, as young Piolo Pascual in “Walang Kapalit”, as Betty La Fea’s younger brother Andrew in the ABS-CBN adaptation of the hit Colombian franchise, as the young and handsome Bobet in “Your Song Presents: Boystown” and on “ASAP” where he is a part of the Gigger Boys and A-Pop. Sam’s credibility as an endorser has also brought his image to a different level. He is one of the faces of Bench and Skechers, as well as the endorser of Karate Kid fast food chain. He has also been lauded for his numerous advocacies. Sam is Department of Education’s (DepEd) ambassador, and a World Vision stalwart. Sam credits his current success to the support of SAMster. They have been following every detail of their idol’s career, showing support and are always present in each and every activity that Sam gets involved with.
