I’m Sam, I’m 13, and I’m from Lewisham. I play guitar all the time really. I really enjoy it, it’s
my passion, as is singing, and performing is also really fun. I fairly recently got
into writing my own songs. So being able to tell
your audience what you’re thinking about, what’s
happening, I think it’s good. – [Andrew] Sam loves
singing, and seeing him enjoy it so much, that’s a real pleasure. (happy music) – [Sam] My family have
always been into walking. – We are on top of the world. – [Sam] When I was nine, we
climbed three peaks which are the three highest mountains in
England, Wales and Scotland. (mumbles) – [Andrew] It was a great thing to do, that was the year my wife
became ill, actually. We did lots of things that
year to celebrate my 50th. I’m glad we did, because we
made the most of that year. (piano) So Sam was 10 when his mum
was diagnosed with leukemia, and she was ill for two
years and doing very well. And then there was a very rare
complication, and she died — (sad music) And she died, 15 months ago now. (sad music) Sam and his sister have been amazing in coping with the loss of their mother. It’s an awful thing to
happen to any child. You know, we were a good team of four, and now I think we’re a good
team of three, we’re okay. (triumphant music) Sam sang a song at her funeral. And I said to him then,
if you can do that, you can do anything. It won’t be any harder than that day. Enjoy it, sweetheart. Love you. ♪ Like a rolling stone ♪ (harmonica) ♪ To be without a home ♪ ♪ Like a complete unknown ♪ ♪ Like a rolling stone ♪ (cheering) – Woo. – How long have you been
playing the harmonica? – Almost a year now, so. – Whoa, how long have you been singing? – I started playing guitar
like five years ago, and then singing after that. I started playing
singing along with it. – So you play the guitar, you
sing, and play the harmonica? – Yeah. – Yo. (applause) – Do you write your own songs? – Yeah. – Do you have something
you could sing for us? – I don’t have my guitar on me now. – I have my guitar back
there, you want to play it? – Oh no this is cool. (applause) – (mumbles) I’ve got an acoustic. – I mean them two are meant to be. (guitar and harmonica) ♪ The tweety bird he told me so ♪ ♪ He gave you up, you should have known ♪ ♪ But now you’re meant to (mumbles) ♪ ♪ You can make the decision on your own ♪ (guitar) ♪ So take me into your arms and say ♪ ♪ Everything’s all right ♪ ♪ And take me into your eyes and tell me ♪ ♪ I’m not out of sight yet ♪ ♪ A losing battle for both sides ♪ ♪ Everyone has lost some lives ♪ ♪ You thought that you were being brave ♪ ♪ Your dignity would it save ♪ ♪ Now all you’ve served is your family ♪ ♪ One less wait ♪ – Did he write this himself? – Yeah. ♪ I lay in bed to think about ♪ ♪ All the things you didn’t shout ♪ ♪ You didn’t laugh or cry or beg ♪ ♪ You didn’t try to pull my leg ♪ ♪ But you wouldn’t listen at all ♪ ♪ When I said ♪ – Here we go ♪ Take me into your arms and say ♪ ♪ Everything’s all right ♪ ♪ And take me into your eyes and tell me ♪ ♪ I’m not out of sight yet ♪ (applause) – Thank you very much. – [Will.i.am] I wouldn’t think
that a 13 year old would be that articulate and able to
like pull the emotion down, and form it in a sentence like that. Takes a very experienced soul. – Amazing talent, man. (applause) – So now you choose who
you’re gonna go with. (piano) – I think I’ll go with Danny. (cheering) – I was really impressed
with your song choices at the blinds, this is
why I chose this song. You are my one team that I feel I can give the biggest challenge to. And if you get it right, it could be epic. For me this is my biggest risk,
and I want to stick with it. ♪ I want you so good
and scream let me out ♪ (piano) I’ve actually never had a
piano rehearsal go that badly. (singing) I know it’s crazy and it’s
in shambles right now, but crazy’s good. And I believe in you three,
I want to make sure that you believe in this idea as
much as I do before I go mad and change the song, because
I don’t want to change it. I’m sticking with my gut instincts of how I visualize the end goal. I have put literally all my
trust in them to go where I’m working, and learn in their own way. I don’t know whether I’ve set
the bar too high, but they need to prove to me and prove to everyone, prove to themselves they deserve
a place in the semi-finals. (upbeat music) ♪ Pressure pushing down on me ♪ ♪ Pressing down on you ♪ ♪ No man ask for ♪ ♪ Under pressure ♪ ♪ That burns buildings down ♪ ♪ Splits families in two ♪ ♪ Puts people on streets ♪ ♪ It’s the terror of knowing
what this world is about ♪ ♪ Watching some good friends
screaming let me out ♪ ♪ Pray tomorrow takes me higher ♪ ♪ Pressure on people ♪ ♪ People on streets ♪ ♪ Turned away from it
all like a blind man ♪ ♪ Sat on a fence but it don’t work ♪ ♪ Keep coming up with love
but it’s so slashed and torn ♪ ♪ Why ♪ ♪ Why ♪ ♪ Why ♪ ♪ Insanity laughs under
pressure we’re breaking ♪ ♪ Can’t we give ourselves
one more chance ♪ ♪ Why can’t we give love
that one more chance ♪ ♪ Why can’t we give love ♪ ♪ Give love ♪ ♪ Give love ♪ ♪ Give love ♪ ♪ Give love ♪ ♪ Give love ♪ – You guys totally rocked it,
I was with you the whole way. You couldn’t have given it any
more, I believed everything. – I thought it was amazing. What we just witnessed there was the biggest test of your careers. I put my trust in you, and you came back and you worked on it. That is an amazing testament
to each and every one of you. (applause) ♪ Caring about ourselves ♪ ♪ This is our last dance ♪ ♪ This our last dance ♪ ♪ This is ourselves ♪ ♪ Under pressure ♪ ♪ Under pressure ♪ ♪ Under pressure ♪ (upbeat music) – [Emma] Danny, who’s
the winner of the battle? – [Danny] I have to go with someone that has something a little bit deeper. And that’s Sam. (applause) ♪ From the moment I could talk ♪ – The song Dan gave me was
Father and Son by Cat Stevens. I’m really close with my dad,
so I’m gonna draw all the emotion from that, and just
put all of it into the song. – I don’t think I’ve ever met
a 13 year old that could move you the way that Sam does when
he delivers his songs to us. You can’t coach pure passion. (upbeat music) – You must be so proud. – I am really proud of him, yeah. – He just seems like such a natural. – He came on this without
any teaching before. – [Danny] Amazing. – It’s all from inside him, yeah. – Which is great. I think the only thing that’ll
let Sam down is if he gets too emotional with it,
and if he overdoes it. Do your thing, but channel something, whether it’s just singing to your dad or forget everything, or whatever it is. Because you have the power
to create the atmosphere. – [Sam] When I’m performing
a song I think about my dad, my mum, my sister, and just everyone who means something to me. I hope I make everyone proud. (guitar) ♪ It’s not time to make a change ♪ ♪ Just relax, take it easy ♪ ♪ You’re still young, that’s your fault ♪ ♪ There’s so much you have to know ♪ ♪ But take your time, think a lot ♪ ♪ Why, think of everything you’ve got ♪ ♪ For you will still be here tomorrow ♪ ♪ But your dreams may not ♪ ♪ How can I try to explain ♪ ♪ When I do it turns away again ♪ ♪ It’s always been the same ♪ ♪ Same old story ♪ ♪ From the moment I could talk ♪ ♪ I was ordered to listen ♪ ♪ Now there’s a way ♪ ♪ And I know ♪ – A lot of sing is that sing, but it’s a lot harder to sing and feel. You’re very, very, very special. (applause) ♪ Keeping all the things I knew inside ♪ ♪ It’s hard, but it’s
harder to ignore it ♪ ♪ If they were right, I’d agree ♪ ♪ But it’s them they know, not me ♪ ♪ There’s a way ♪ ♪ And I know that I have to go away ♪ ♪ I know I have to go ♪ (applause) (upbeat music) – Now you’re in the final. Let’s try and find you something to sing, let’s try and make you who
you are with another song. Why don’t you do your own song? – Yeah, that sounds good. – That song for me was so powerful. – To me I guess it’s
about someone I have lost. – [Andrew] Sam’s mum, he
was a very special boy, and had a special talent
as well, and she was keen for him to carry on. She was sorry — (piano) I think the last thing
Sam’s mum said to him was don’t feel bad about being
happy, even if I’m not here. Wherever she is, I hope that
she can see him singing. – [Danny] Sam is already writing about some of the hardest things. So sad when you talk about it, isn’t it? He lost his mum. I want this to be the best song The Voice Kids has ever seen. Can we work on it, make
it your final song? – Sounds good, yeah, I’m up for that. – [Danny] I’ve brought
someone today that could help make the most perfect final song we can. He’s my best mate, please
welcome Tom Fletcher. – Hey mate. – Hello mate. – Nice to meet you. – You too. – [Sam] When Tom walked
in I was like, mind blown. – I think what you’ve got is
really special and unique. – Thanks. – [Tom] Could we hear the song? ♪ I’d like to tell you after all ♪ – [Danny] The song was almost perfect. All I think we need is to
somehow bring the audience in. ♪ I’ll come out and say ♪ ♪ Na na na na ♪ – [Sam] I was playing with
the guitarist from McFly which is, that’s amazing isn’t it? – [Danny] This song is to his mum, so — – That’s the power of music isn’t it? You get to say the things
that you can’t say, and you do it through your song. ♪ I’d like to tell you after all ♪ ♪ I spoke with the lizards on the wall ♪ ♪ They didn’t tell me nothing new ♪ ♪ And nothing I knew wasn’t true ♪ ♪ They told me all the
things that they saw ♪ ♪ You do ♪ ♪ So take me into your arms and say ♪ ♪ Everything’s all right ♪ ♪ And take me into your eyes and tell me ♪ ♪ I’m not out of sight yet ♪ ♪ What do you want ♪ ♪ What will you get ♪ ♪ Is the time for death already set ♪ ♪ What do you need ♪ ♪ What do you have ♪ ♪ Is there anything you truly love ♪ ♪ By the end of life when we have had ♪ ♪ Enough ♪ ♪ So take me into your arms and say ♪ ♪ Everything’s all right ♪ ♪ And take me into your eyes and tell me ♪ ♪ I’m not out of sight yet ♪ ♪ No I’m not out of sight yet ♪ ♪ Na na na na na ♪ ♪ Na na na na na ♪ ♪ No, no I’m not out of sight yet ♪ (cheering) – It’s so amazing to see
someone so young already putting your talent and really hard
things that you’re going through into your music for you to help yourself heal and move, you know? I can’t explain like how proud I feel sitting front row at
this incredible concert. And Danny, I just want to say like, I think you guys together have
made something really magical and I really hope that it
continues and you guys continue just to make incredible songs, ’cause — – Pixie. – Even if I can’t, if I don’t
know what words you’re saying, I feel every word that you sing and it just comes from a different place. And for a kid to be able
to do that is just — I don’t know how it’s possible. That’s such a mature thing
to do for a kid performing. I just believed every single word, and I think you’re very special. ♪ Hey Jude ♪ ♪ Don’t make it bad ♪ ♪ Take a sad song and make it better ♪ ♪ Remember to let her into your heart ♪ ♪ Then you can start to make it better ♪ ♪ Hey Jude ♪ ♪ Don’t be afraid ♪ ♪ You were made to go out and get her ♪ ♪ The minute you let her under your skin ♪ ♪ Then you begin to make it better ♪ – Sing it, Sam. ♪ And anytime you feel the pain ♪ ♪ Hey Jude, refrain ♪ ♪ Don’t carry the world
upon your shoulders ♪ ♪ For well you know that it’s a fool ♪ ♪ Who plays it cool ♪ ♪ By making his world a little colder ♪ (happy music) ♪ Hey Jude ♪ ♪ Don’t let me down ♪ ♪ You have found her ♪ ♪ Now go and get her ♪ ♪ Remember to let her into your heart ♪ ♪ Then you can start ♪ ♪ To make it better, better, better ♪ ♪ Na na na na na na na ♪ ♪ Na na na na ♪ ♪ Hey Jude ♪ ♪ Jude, Jude, Judey, Judey, Judey ♪ ♪ Na na na na na na na na ♪ ♪ Na na na na ♪ ♪ Hey Jude ♪ (guitar) (cheering) – [Emma] I can now announce that the winner of The Voice Kids 2019 is — (suspenseful music) (cheering) Sam.
