Sam Concepcion to open for Taylor Swift

Teen heartthrob Sam Concepcion will open for country-pop superstar Taylor Swift's concert in Araneta Coliseum this February 19th. According to Sam's business manager Carlo Arreglado Orosa, Taylor Swift personally selected Sam to be her front act from the lists of OPM acts presented to her. Taylor Swift Live in Manila is brought to us by Ovation Productions.

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,” and 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. He is also one of the hosts of "Shoutout Level Up".

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 and Jollibee. 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.

Sam's self-titled debut album under Universal Record was certified gold and has released a DVD entitled "Pop Class".
