Local girl asks popstar to sing at child’s birth
Pop sensation Sam Callahan, who is due to release his new single ‘Runaway Train’ at the end of January, was asked to perform the single whilst his biggest fan, Demi Lee from Glasgow, was due give birth.
Unfortunately, Demi Lee’s first child arrive early so Sam never got to perform on the occasion – though he found this out just as he was leaving for the hospital. Demi Lee tweeted Sam about the birth, letting him know that the single was still played.

Sam was originally picked to be in ‘The Wanted’ but they found out he was 5 months too young. Sam attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School at 16 where he was in a mixed band managed by Geri Halliwell and Simon Fuller, other band mates included the boys from District 3 from xfactor! Sam spent two years working with them and some of the best music producers in the business.
Callahan is now working with successful hit producer John McLaughlin who has produced records for The Wanted and Take That, and many more. Sam is forging his own music career and his natural talents are clearly showing through in his first single release.
