Sabelle (born Harriet Isabel Breer from New York City) was a female dance singer from the 90’s.  As a child, Sabelle won numerous talent shows and performed on “Showtime at the Apollo.” She did background vocals for artists such as Donna Summer & Lisa Lisa in the early 90’s.

In 1994, Sabelle released her first two singles, “Where Did the Love Go (Say What, Say What, Say What)” and “Old Thing” on Tommy Boy Records. It’s unknown how or if those singles ever charted.

Sabelle worked as a songwriter and found success writing the song, “Look What You’ve Done” for Asante in 1996. During that same year, after spending time songwriting, Sabelle signed a recording contract with Sony\Work Records in 1996.

In 1997, Sabelle released her self-titled debut album. It’s unknown how or if the album ever charted. The first single, “Why Would Lie” didn’t appear to chart at all on the Billboard charts.

The second single from her album, “One O’Clock” managed to peak at #106 on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. After that, it seemed as if Sabelle had faded into obscurity.
