Samantha Kayne is a singer/songwriter. Before cancer, Samantha wrote, sang, and listened to music. Her favorite genre is pop and her biggest influence is Meghan Trainor. At the beginning of her cancer experience, Samantha was unable to sing. She did, however, find her voice again and began creating her own music. Play It Back has made her experience with music awesome and helped make her dreams come true to record her own songs. It allowed her to connect with other singers and cancer survivors around her age. Her favorite memory of Play It Back thus far is when Kenli sent Samantha her first song and she played it in her mom’s car. She said it was like she was on the radio.
