Annabell grew up in a not very musical doctor's family - however, her talent was not a secret for long, so her first solo performances started already at the age of seven. As a present for her graduation diploma, her parents gave her the possibility to record demo material and to have some professional pictures taken of her. Thereupon she received offers from producers and model agencies.
Nevertheless, she wanted to learn something "decent"…so she came to Frankfurt to study law. There a totally new world of music was opened to her, and Annabell quickly realized that her future did not lie behind dusty books. Performing as a member of the background choir of Michael Jackson and with Sabrine Setlure should only be the beginning of everything. In 1996 she met singer Joe Whitney (2), with whom she founded the band "StreetLIVE". Together they became an unbeatable team and toured throughout Europe. Shortly after Michael Williams joined them, and then Vanessa Ekpenyong. In 1998 Annabell and Joe Whitney (2) founded their own artist agency "All Entertainment GmbH". That year she also got a guest role in the TV series "Tanja" and wrote the theme music for it. 2001 Annabell's song "Let it Shine" is being used for radio and TV advertisings and becomes an earworm all over Germany.
