Gregory Sams is a Pop/R&B singer raised in Coconut Grove; one of the oldest black neighborhoods in Miami, FL. Gregory is 1 of 7 children, but was raised by his great grandmother in a household separate from his siblings. He began his musical career singing in church, and later he and his brothers formed a group. In 2014 Gregory’s older brother Marquis Sams, was murdered, in a case of mistaken identity. While singing together in the group this brother would often tell Gregory he had “the gift”, and a journey of becoming a star is for Gregory, if not anyone else in the group. His passing serves as Gregory’s motivation. Gregory is the reigning Overtown “Lyric Live: Allstars” champion. He won, an Apollo style competition, solidifying himself as one of the best new talents, the area has to offer.
