Biography

Queens, New York

Linda Scott (born Linda Joy Sampson June 1, 1945) was a pop singer from active in the early to mid 1960’s. Her biggest hit was the 1961 million-selling hit “I’ve Told Every Little Star”. She went on to place 12 songs on the charts over the next 4 years, the last being ‘Who’s Been Sleeping In My Bed,’ which was one of the first collaborations between the legendary writing team of Hal David and Burt Bacharach.

Born in Queens, New York, Linda Scott was still in high school when she auditioned for Arthur Godfrey’s radio show on CBS in 1959. After having won a place on the show, Linda and other young performers became regular guests on the show. During the show’s run the young singer came to the attention of Epic records and Linda made her recording debut (singing as Linda Sampson) with the single ‘In-Between Teen’.

In 1961 she signed with the Canadian-American label, a label that had struck gold with the Santo & Johnny single ‘Sleep Walk’. Though still in high school, the label changed her performing name to Linda Scott producing and releasing the hit ‘I’ve Told Every Little Star’. The song was originally written by Oscar Hammerstein II and Jerome Kern and was first used in the 1932 production of ‘Music In The Air’. That year Scott had a total of 3 top 20 hits.
