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.

    Remember you from last year. Good to see you again this year. This was totally;awesome. I am being terribly honest when I say I watch the youngest group with a combination of awe and dread because some of you are so much better than many in the older groups. Hope you win something because you deserve it.

    Good luck,
    Queenie

      Sa5m you are a very accomplished drummer. I’ve enjoyed watching and voting for each of your 3 entries, but this is by far your best one. Abigayle must love listening to you play her favorite song. Keep up the hard work and I just know you’ll be up there one day playing with Mr. Grohl and Mr. Hawkins. My best wishes to you and your family.

      We were supposed to play a fund raiser in May and another in September but both have been cancelled because of coronavirus. Hopefully we get to play together soon again
