Camille is of Jamaican and Cuban descent, and started singing from the age of three. The church was a part of her life from a very young age, and she was heavily involved in the youth gospel choir, learning about harmonies, melody, and pitch. Her family loved music, and Camille's early life was influenced by artists such as Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley and Earth Wind and Fire as well as other noted Motown and R&B artists.
Camille took part in many school productions and plays and studied part-time at the Sylvia Young Theatre School to strengthen her singing, dancing, and acting skills. However, she was encouraged to focus on her education, which her parents always placed paramount over extra-curricular activities. Camille then decided to finish her school, sixth form and university qualifications, where she gained a Masters in Economics before quitting the industry to focus full-time on music.
