Sabrina (Greek singer)
Sabrina (Greek: Σαμπρίνα) is a Greek pop singer born on 29 September 1972 in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe as Sabrina-Alexandra Tserkanou (Greek: Σαμπρίνα-Αλεξάνδρα Τσερκάνου) to Greek immigrant parents. Her grandparents fled during the Greek-Turkish War and settled in Africa as many Greek refugees did so back then. The family moved back to Greece and Sabrina began her pop career.
Sabrina took piano and voice lessons from an early age. She made her debut in 1992 with the album Stin Aggalia Mou Ela. In her next two albums Eleftheri and Ego tha Ime Ego, she tried her skills at composing; she follows with three additional releases Geitonies tou Feggariou, Epikindino Paihnidi, and Ipopsies. In 1994, she teamed up with Kostas Charitodiplomenos to compose Ftes. The song is entered in the OGAE Song Contest and won, bringing the trophy for the first time to Greece.
In the winter of 1998, Sabrina debuted in the international scene with the CD single Do Ya Do Ya written by Joe Balyn and Peter Bauwens. In 2000, she released the album Boom Boom and in 2002 the album Breakfast Time. In 2003, she participated in the Greek national final for Eurovision with the song Camera -a dance anthem- and ranked 3rd in the public choice. After that she immediately released an album under the title Camera that was a commercial flop.
In her career Sabrina has gradually performed at many of the most famous nightclubs in Greece. In 2006, she did a photo spread for the magazine Maxim and in 2007 she did a photoshooting with her son Vaggelis for the Christmas issue of the Greek Hello! magazine.
- She was married to Greek basketball player Panagiotis Liadelis but the couple divorced.
