Ophélie Kleerekoper-Winter (born
February 20, 1974 in Boulogne-Billancourt, Hauts-de-Seine) is a French

Her father David Alexandre Winter, was a Jewish Dutch pop singer during

parents divorced when she was just 2 years old. It was in the United
States that Winter studied dance, singing, music, and acting. At the age
of 17, she left for Paris where she lived with her mother and brother. It
was here she was discovered by a modeling agent on the Champs-Élysées, and
after three years of modeling, she decided to become a singer and an
actress. The singer Prince wrote her a song.
She currently resides in Paris making various TV appearances. Her
look-alike puppet is in the French show "Les Guignols de l'info" (1988).

was also a singer, was looking for a young female to join him in a duet.
Winter accepted and began recording. She now has released four albums: No
Soucy!, which her brother collaborated on, Privacy, Explicit Lyrics and
