Hi my name is Samantha Becker, I am a 17 year old singer and actress. I am from Long Island, NY. I found my love of singing at the age of 3, I came out with my first single "Wake Up" at the age of 9 produced at Illegal Beats studio. I started acting at the age of 7 . I stared as a leading role in my first independent film, "James", when I was 7. It was a great experience, my second film was "Casualties" where my character had to get shot and killed. My third independent film was "Golden Boy" I played an angel who brought him back after his childhood flash back to pass on. I also was in an episode and music video for the Naked Brothers Band on Nickelodeon. One major event in my life was when I had my back operation the summer of 2009. I had bad scoliosis, when I had my back surgery it took me a while to become myself again. They had me on heavy pain killers like morphine. The painkillers made me very confused and irritable. After my surgery for a week or two I was in so much pain that I never had the energy to sing. As I was healing my best friend slowly started noticing that I was humming and singing again. Music has always been one thing that has been there to help me through the difficult times of life. I recently came out with a song on I Tunes "Take Me Away" recorded at Nvistudios. I have performed at the night club Nakisaki, and at the comedy club Giggles. I was a guest singer on "The 4 Laughs Comedy Show" on Time Warner Cable.
