Sabrina (Greek: Σαμπρίνα), born as Alexandra Tserkanou (Greek: Αλεξάνδρα Τσερκάνου), is a Greek pop singer who was born on 29 September 1969 in Bulawayo, Rhodesia (today Zimbabwe) to Greek parents.
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 Costas 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 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. She first released a re-release of Breakfast Time along with the single Camera and also released her next studio album Agori Mou. In 2004 she returned with a more dance-pop orientated record called Se Vlepo. 2006 saw Sabrina return to a more traditional Greek sound with her eleventh studio album I Agapi Pote Den Pethainei. In 2007 she released her twelfth and last studio album thus far Yperparagogi. Sabrina promoted the record with appearances on television. It's also her only record to be available through iTunes.
In 2013, a new song called Apomythopoieisai was posted on YouTube.
In her career Sabrina has gradually performed at many of the most famous nightclubs in Greece.
