Samantha (Sa5m) Lobsinger
My name is Samantha Lobsinger, but I prefer to be called Sa5m. I am 11 years old, in grade 6 and live in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. This is my third time entering the Hit Like A Girl contest.
I have been playing the drums for 2 1/2 years. I wanted to learn them because my younger sister Abigayle has been fighting a rare and aggressive form of cancer and is the biggest Foo Fighter fan in the world. I wanted her to feel like she was at a real concert when I play along with songs.
My best friend and me have started a band with some new friends we have made. Our band name is Maybe Someday. In the past year we have played 3 shows together.
My favourite drummers are Taylor Hawkins and David Grohl of Foo Fighters, Neil Peart of Rush, Roger Taylor of Queen and Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers.
I am dedicating my entry and song choice this year to Abigayle. The track I am playing along to is from the Foo Fighters show in Toronto, Ontario in 2018. It is Abigayle's favourite song. Our family was lucky enough to go to the concert. It was the greatest night of our lives seeing Foo Fighters play live.
If you want to see other video drum covers or videos of my band, go to our family YouTube channel The Lobsingers.
Good luck to everyone entering Hit Like A Girl this year.
