CLAUDETTE “CP” PETERS

claudette-petersClaudette “CP” Peters first made her mark on the regional and international soca scene with her hit single Something’s Got A Hold On Me with Da Bhann in 1994. Dubbed Antigua’s beautiful soca diva, CP has had a hit every year since, including Make Waves, Showtime, Go, Claudette Go, and the Trinidadian penned hit All I Know, which she used to claim her first Antigua Party Monarch Title.

Having moved on to make Antiguan Party Monarch history with a straight four-peat win from 2005 to 2008, and receiving other awards including gospel artist, new female soca artist, female artist, soca artist and song of the year in regional and international competitions, CP is primed to win big at Trinidad and Tobago’s International Soca Monarch competition.

CP’s singing background started in the church leading choirs. She moved on to lead various bands at hotels and eventually became such a force on the soca scene that by 1995, mobile phone company Digicel recruited her to be spokeswoman for their Antigua branch. She was also awarded title of Order of The Most Princely Heritage by Antigua’s Governor General.

But Antigua is just one country the soca sweetheart has impressed. As lead vocalist for The Taxik Band for the past four years, CP’s star power has shared the stage at many other venues across the Caribbean and in the US with reggae headliners Beenie Man and Tanya Stephens, soca star Destra Garcia and soca king Machel Montano.

CP has a daughter and is known for her charity work, mainly with children with special needs, in Antigua
