We are so excited to be welcoming Sam back to SHYC.
Sam's passion for music and performance started at school. He could often be found putting on impromptu shows and entertaining fellow students. Coupled with his love of Elton John, Sam's talents started to really blossom after leaving education as he began to develop his Tribute to Sir Elton Act, which he has now perfected. Sam's even mastered Sir Elton's unique mannerisms during his performance.
