Annabelle (born 26 July 1967) is a French singer, actress, and daughter of actor Marcel Mouloudji.

Singer[edit]

She performed the title "Fuis Lawrence d'Arabia" in 1987, which peaked at #12 on the French Singles Chart (Top 50).[1] In 1988, two other 12" were released : "Casanova Solo" and "Impunément", which didn't meet the same success despite a music video for "Impunément" which was a real mini movie about ten minutes.

In 2002 Bruno Blum released a reggae version of The Clash's Should I Stay or Should I Go on a Jamaican 45 RPM vinyl single featuring Annabelle Mouloudji improvising a scat vocal. The song was reissued on CD in 2011 as part of the Human Race anthology. Other contributions with Bruno Blum include co-writing La Bombe glacée (featured on Blum's Think Différent album) and other songs recorded and released by him. A French version of Should I Stay or Should I Go also featuring Annabelle, entitled Si je reste, was released as a CD single in France. It was also included on Bruno Blum's Nuage d'Éthiopie 2001 album.

Annabelle made a brief come back in the music in 2000 with the album of children's rhymes La Vie à découvrir de Victor et Amandine, which was very different from her 1980s songs.

Actress[edit]

She was also an actress in movies : Un Été d'enfer (1984), À nous les garçons (1985) and has participated in several TV movies as Theroigne de Méricourt (1989), Trois Nuits (1991) or La Crim ( 1999).

Author[edit]

In 2011, she released an autobiographical book titled La P'tite Coquelicot, published by Calmann-Lévy.[2]
