History
Singer Samantha Sang (b. 1951) enjoyed a successful solo career during the 1960s as Cheryl Gray. She issued six singles for EMI between 1966 and 1968: `Real Thing'/`Move on' (December 1966), `Brand New Woman'/`In a Woman's Eyes' (December 1966), `You Made Me What I Am'/`You Don't Love Me Anymore' (April 1967), `When You're Not Near'/`You're the Boy' (August 1967), `You Were There'/`Lonely People' (1968) and `It's Not Easy Loving You'/`I'm Gonna Try' (1968). `You Made Me What I Am' was her biggest hit, reaching #8 in May 1967.

In 1969, Gray travelled to the UK where she issued two singles, the Barry Gibb penned `The Love of a Woman'/`Don't Let It Happen Again' and `Nothing in the World Like Love'/`Mia Bamba'. By the early 1970s, she had re-emerged as Samantha Sang (her real name was Cheryl Lau Sang) and signed to Polydor. She issued three singles, `It Could Have Been', `Raining Every Day Since Monday'/`Nothing in the World Like Love' and `Can't You Hear the Music?'/`You've Gone Away', and an album, Samantha Sang and Rocked the World in 1975.

In 1977, Sang recorded the Barry and Robin Gibb song `Emotion'/`When Love is Gone' (produced by Barry), which became an international hit (Australian #2, UK #11, US #3 in April 1978). Sang was voted Top New Female Singer at the 1978 Cashbox-Billboard Awards in the USA. She continued to issue singles (`You Keep Me Dancing'/ `Change of Heart'; `In the Midnight Hour'/`Now') but failed to achieve further chart success.
