Their show is a guaranteed crowd pleaser and this gal can REALLY sing! Sabrina is a Canadian treasure in the making.”

"Sabrina has more energy than that bunny in the battery commercials.  She also has class, style, sass and smarts.  When she sings, the whole damn room lights up. I could be in love..."

Richard Flohil, Publicist, Richard Flohil and Associate

“Sabrina can caress a ballad, shout a mean blues, and swing with the best of them. Sabrina's gift in using her exceptional voice includes the ability to make lyrics come alive. Hearing her is a beautiful experience.”

Barbara Barnes Sims, Sun Records, 1957—1960
