Samantha Valentino – Young Recording Artist

Samantha Valentino has a unique, sweet, lilting voice that is second to none. She recently recorded an original song written by co-writers Angela Valentino and John Mulrenan. The song is entitled “Nothing Like a Son” and was recorded at Sony Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.

Doc Holiday, President and CEO of Mega International Records and renowned hit producer said, “If you listen to your heart, you will truly be amazed with Samantha’s great talent.” He feels that he has discovered a young artist heading for stardom.

As the winner of 17 Telly awards for music videos, Doc knows talent when he spots it. He has also been the winner of both the Golden Music Award and Nashville Universe Awards as Producer of the Year for the past three years.

Samantha is just 20 years old and resides in Long Branch, New Jersey. She is the daughter of Sal Valentino, a realtor in Atlantic City.

A 2017 graduate of Holy Spirit High School in Absecon, Samantha has been singing since pre-school. Since then, she has honed her talent and appeared in many talent shows and church functions. She also studied ballet and tap dancing, as well as taking private singing lessons. Other songs that Samantha has recorded include “Here’s to Love,” written by her aunt, Angela Valentino and the recently released “Tango,” which she recorded in Nashville at the famous Owen Bradley’s Barn Studio.

Angela Valentino, President and CEO of Valentino Enterprises, Inc. of New Jersey, also manages her niece. She recently announced a publishing affiliation agreement with BMI (DBA Valentino Music). John Mulrenan, the co-writer of the new release, holds a degree in music and owns Acorn Digital, a recording studio in Howell, New Jersey. Samantha’s release is distributed by Mega International and is available through all major online music outlets.
