The daughter of an evangelical minister, she was born in Vicksburg, Mississippi but as a young girl her family moved to Watts, California. From an early age, she sang in her church choir and eventually became a member of the Southern California State Youth Choir.

Coates is best remembered for her duet with Paul Anka called " (You're) Having My Baby" that went to No. 1 on the Billboard charts in 1974.

Coates went on to record on her own, meeting with modest success.
