Capucine did her primary education in Junior college, and a trade school. While in college, she did some sports medicine work, and was a cheerleader. She was born into a growing family, and lived modestly, but with having such a large family it was not a lavish lifestyle, and her and her siblings often shared clothing that was passed down from the oldest to the youngest. Christmas in those days were fun and she always looked for fun time with the family and remembered that was the time of getting something of her own new. Her loving parents who stayed together until the death of her father, met the needs of their family though it was touch raising a big family. Capucine being the middle child always having to be pushing the older ones up, to helping out the younger ones.

Utilizing, the spiritual aspects of her life she has too end these generational curses placed on her family.
Coppe released her first album GOD’S PROJECT (Book I), and released her first single “Holy Groove”, on Nov 9, 2011, she had a warm reception of the song, and had the opportunity to sing in many churches, and at the Knotts Berry Farm Gospel Festival, where she was able to grace the stage with artist like the Nevil Sisters, Lecrae and many others. This was a new field for her, though the reception was warm there was not much success for Coppe, she did not have a lot of doors opened to her, because this was a new genre, and field. This soon would change, but not after releasing her 2ND album GOD’S PROJECT (Book II), her record company did not promote this digital release, and was as if it never was even put out. Things came to a halt, when various trials, deaths in the family, and herself became sick, after being exposed to some chemicals she put her career on hold. After dealing with the pandemic and recovering from the after effects of the chemical exposure, that left her with migraines 24 hours a day, shortness of breath, and pain throughout her entire body.

With the release of her new single “Dance in The Dark” which is currently number 1 on the World Indie Radio Charts, and number 1 on the European Indie Charts, is a new start to what God has promised her, and the doors that he has opened. Coppe will be releasing more singles in 2023 and her next album called “The Breastplate of Righteousness”.
