Cherry Belle, also known as ChiBi, is an Indonesian girl band founded on 27 February 2011. The current line up is Angel, Anisa, Cherly, Christy, Felly, Gigi, and Ryn. The band is influenced by K-Pop.
Cherry Belle was formed on 27 February 2011. Music producer Dino Raturandang held open auditions in Kelapa Gading, Jakarta, which 400 girls attended. After the first round left twenty hopefuls, nine girls were chosen for the group, under the stage names Angel, Anisa, Cherly, Christy, Devi, Felly, Gigi, Ryn and Wenda. All were in their late teens or early twenties. According to Wenda, they were chosen in part for their "Asian look", on top of their singing and dancing abilities.
After several months of training and living together for a month to improve interpersonal relationships, in August 2011 Cherry Belle released "Love is You", a mini-album with five tracks. The album was released as both a standard and deluxe edition. "Love is You" sold well. The band's first single, "Dilema" ("Dilemma") was released soon after and received much airplay. Cherry Belle also performed regularly, both on television and in concert. They also found numerous fans, who go by the nickname Tweebes. On 8 April 2012, Cherry Belle launched Love is You, a film directed by Hanny Saputra detailing their rise to stardom. The members played themselves. The film has the same title as the band's second single. Later that month, Devi and Wenda were let go from their contract, reportedly due to being too old for the group.
