Beyoncé profile



Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter (pronounced bee-yon-say; born September 4, 1981) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Originally from Houston, Texas, she performed in various music competitions as a child, and had her popularity soar in the 90s as the lead singer of R&B girl-group Destiny's Child. Managed by dad, Mathew Knowles, the girls became one of the world's best-selling female groups of all time. Their hiatus saw the release of Beyoncé's debut solo album, Dangerously in Love (released in 2003), which established her as a popular solo artist across the globe; it sold 11 million copies, earned her five Grammy Awards, and featured the Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles "Crazy in Love" and "Baby Boy".

Following the end of Destiny's Child in June 2005, she released her second solo album, B'Day (2006). She married the hip hop legend Jay Z in 2008. Her immensely popular fifth studio album, Beyoncé (2013), was distinguished from previous releases by its experimental production and exploration of darker ideas.
