Multimedia star Sam Concepcion recently bagged the 2008 MYX Music Awards' Favorite New Artist title. The 15-year old singer is the youngest recipient of the award to date. The awards night of the third MYX Music Awards took place last March 26 at the Meralco Theater in Ortigas.
"I am very happy to receive this award and I know I have to work harder. Thanks to the Samsters [Sam's fans] for their time and resources," declares Sam. Songs from his self-titled debut album continue to enjoy warm reception in MYX's daily countdown. His recent award gives a strong boost to his career as a STAGES/Star Magic talent, as Sam equally loves acting and singing on stage or on television.
Even if he is the youngest MYX Favorite New Artist, Sam has taken on some big responsibilities of his own. With his current role as the Department of Education's spokesperson for the youth, Sam has just finished touring some 40 schools nationwide, inspiring young people to excel in school. He is also the celebrity spokesperson for b4usurf.org's online campaign promoting cyber-ethics and cyber-safety among young Internet surfers.
Sam Concepcion's latest single from his self-titled album, "I'll Find Your Heart," is still playing on MYX music channel (Skycable channel 23).
