Biography

Krung Thep, Thailand (1995 – present)

Amita Marie Young (born Su Min Ta Marie Young, Thai: อมิตา มารี ยัง Amita Marie Yang, December 14, 1980 in Bangkok, Thailand), better known under her stage name Tata Young, is a Thai singer, model actress and dancer.

Young is the only daughter of an American father and a Thai mother. In a childhood filled with singing and dancing, Tata had already shown early signs of a talent that would take her from being Thailand’s biggest teenage pop sensation to an international recording artist. At the tender age of 11, Tata beat 5,300 other young children to be crowned winner of the International Division of the nationwide Thailand Junior Singing Contest by belting her rendition of “One Night Only”.

The victory earned her an entertainer’s contract with Yamaha Music in preparation for her impending debut in show business. In 1994, the 14-year-old caught the eye of A&R executives from Grammy Entertainment, Thailand’s biggest entertainment conglomerate, snapping her up with a recording artist contract.

Within a short year, Tata had recorded and released her debut Thai-language album “Amita Tata Young” which shot to the top of the charts and sold more than a million copies in less than five months. Almost overnight – and at the tender age of 15 - Tata became the biggest pop sensation in Thailand.

Her reputation was solidified when sales of her follow-up album “TATA 1,000,000 Copies Celebration”, that included the hit single “Chan Rak Thur” (I Love You), hit the 1 million sales mark as well.
