Former “American Idol” winner Samantha “Simply Sam” Diaz says their unglamorous return to singing in New York Metropolis subways for cash is not the ultimate chapter — as an alternative, the bounce again is underway.
Simply Sam joined us Friday on “TMZ Reside” and advised us why profitable a present like ‘Idol’ is not all the time all it is cracked as much as be … particularly beneath some very distinctive and onerus circumstances.
Whereas a lot of people, Sam included, have a look at ‘Idol’ as a possible golden ticket to fame and fortune … the non-binary singer says the fact is kind of completely different.
Sam says an ideal storm resulted of their returning to their subway roots to make money. They received ‘AI’ originally of COVID, and the pandemic made it just about unimaginable to get into the studio and report. Plus, glossing over contracts and blindly signing did not assist both.
Regardless of initially feeling embarrassed by reverting again to subway busking to eat and pay payments … Sam says final month’s headlines really helped, as a result of tons of massive title artists are reaching out and displaying love.
Now, Sam says they’ve a couple of collabs within the works, and so they aren’t afraid to go a special path to make it within the music biz.
LL Cool J famously stated, “do not name it a comeback” … and Simply Sam is assured that phrase will apply to them, too, within the close to future.
