Uncle Sam (singer)
Uncle Sam (born Sam Turner, Detroit, Michigan, United States) is an African American R&B singer. He is best known for being signed to Boyz II Men's Stonecreek Records imprint (distributed by Epic Records) in the late 1990s.
His only Top 40 hit was the Nathan Morris-penned "I Don't Ever Want to See You Again" released October 14, 1997, which reached #6 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #2 on the U.S. R&B chart in 1997. The same track reached #30 in the UK Singles Chart in May 1998. The record sold over one million copies, gaining gold disc status.
After failing to have another hit, Uncle Sam later became a minister at the Life Saviors Baptist Church in Douglasville, Georgia, going by his birth name.
