Sabrina Johnston (born December 31, 1969, Germany) is an American singer, most noted for her 1991 club anthem, "Peace".[1]

Career[edit]

Johnston grew up in the United States attending summer music camps, dance and voice classes before enrolling at Cheyney State University as a music major.

Johnston released her debut album Peace in 1992 with lead single, "Peace", reaching the Top 10 in the UK.[2] Further singles "Friendship", and "I Wanna Sing", missed the Top 40.[2] A second album, Sabrina, was released in Japan only in 1996 and again in 1998 under the title Yum Yum; the only single released from the album, "Reasons", did not chart in the UK.[2] Johnson made an appearance as a backing vocalist on Lauryn Hill's "To Zion", from the album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.[3]

In 1992, Johnston appeared on the Red Hot Organization's dance compilation album, Red Hot + Dance, contributing an original track, "Peace (Nu-Mix)". The album attempted to raise awareness and money in support of the AIDS epidemic, and all proceeds were donated to AIDS charities.
