She wrote her first song at age eleven. At age fifteen Celestte decided that she wanted to pursue music as a career. She started a group called Eturnatee with another female singer and a female rapper. Celestte's father stepped in and decided to manage the group. The girls were signed to Mac Speed Entertainment/Aigne Records, an independent record label.

However, her experiences have only made her stronger and wiser. "I've been burned so many times by those I've trusted. It's been hard to be able to move foward, but somehow I have." says Celestte.
