Tata Young (born Amita Marie Young, Thai: อมิตา มารี ยัง, December 14, 1980 in Thailand) is a Thai American singer, model and actress. A Thai superstar by the time she was in her teens, she became an international success with the release of her first English-language album I Believe in 2004. She remains one of the most popular performers in Thailand, and is a perennial "favorite" pick by magazines and music-video channels.

Tata Young is the only daughter of her American father Tim Young and her Thai mother. She started singing and dancing at an early age. At age 11, Tata beat 5,300 other children to be crowned winner of the international division of the nationwide Thailand Junior Singing Contest with her performance of One Night Only. Among the prizes she won was a keyboard, which was presented to her school, the Bangkok Patana School.

She formed the Tata Young Fan Club in 1997 under the auspices of her company, Tata Entertainment, to gather support from her fans to provide assistance to the Thai children's charity, the Human Development Foundation.

In 2001, she launched a self-titled album under her new record company TERO Records. The album was an instant hit. Almost all of the album's songs, including "Shot:, "A-bo-da-be", "Tua Saeb", "Wan Jai" and "Keb Chan Wai Yuen Khang Thoe Tham Mai" climbed to the top of the music charts.

2003 saw Tata release her second album with Tero Records called Real TT. She co-produced the album, co-wrote the songs and laid out the concepts. Hits included "Super Fan" and "Yak Keb Thoe Wai Thang Song Khon".

In 2004, Tata continued to cultivate the mature image she had embarked upon since leaving GMM Grammy and her teen years behind her. She released her English-language debut album, I Believe on Columbia Records. The album was launched on February 14 in Singapore. More than 100 members of the international press attended her press conference.

The first single taken from the album was "Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy", which stirred more controversy at home in Thailand. In Malaysia, she had to change the name of the tune to "Sexy, Naughty, Cheeky". Further single releases from the album included 'I Believe' and 'Cinderella'

Nonetheless, Tata was voted as one of the "50 sexiest women in the world" by Malaysian publications. In Singapore, she performed and was chosen to join the judging panel at the Miss Singapore Universe 2004 pageant.

She expanded her reach to India, recording the song, Dhoom Dhoom, for soundtrack to a Bollywood movie, Dhoom. Later, she embarked on her Dhoom Dhoom tour.

In the Philippines and Indonesia, more than 20,000 fans queued to see her performance. In South Korea, Tata invited a popular male Korean artist named "H" to sing a duet with her in the hit single "I Think of You". The song was Tata's fourth single from I Believe (album).

In Taiwan, Tata became the first Thai artist to be invited to perform at the Golden Melody Awards – Taiwan's equivalent of the Grammy Awards. Tata has also worked with Vanness Wu-F4, Jay Chou, Lee-Hom Wang, Jolin Tsai and many other artists. In Hong Kong and China, "Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy" and "I Believe" climbed to the top of the charts.
