BEYONCE

Counted among one the top ten most powerful and successful women, Beyonce Giselle Knowles Carter was born on September 4, 1981 in Houston, Texas to Celestine Ann and Mathew Knowles and has younger sister, Solange, who is also a singer. 


Her talent in singing was discovered by her dance instructor, Darlette Johnson. She won a school talent show and her interest in music was piqued. She formed a group with her child hood friend Kelly Rowland, LaTravia Roberson and with other three girls and performed. Later in 1996, the group changed the name to Destiny’s Child. They released their major label debut song, “Killing Time”, in the sound track of the 1997 film, Men in Black. Later, they released their self-titled debut album, scoring their first hit, “No, No, No”.  This hit established them in the entertainment industry. Destiny’s Child’s signature song is Say my Name, which won the Grammy award for Best R&B song.

Unfortunately, the group suffered some major setbacks and three band members left and Beyonce suffered a huge bout of depression, which lasted for years as she was blamed by the critics and media for the fiasco. Her first solo album, Dangerously in Love was launched in June 4, 2003 and made a place in the top songs at the Billboard 200. The single, Baby Boy, reached number one.


In June 2005, her band was disbanded and she released her second solo album, B’Day (2006). She also tried her hand in acting, with a Golden Globe nominated performance in Dream girls (2006). She married Jay-z and has a baby with him. She is one of the most influential women of the century.
