What can we say about this diva extraordinaire??
She has been compared to greats such as Tina Turner, Diana Ross and Josephine Baker. She is a singer, songwriter, dancer, actress and fashion designer.
She is the incomparable, Ms. Beyonce Knowles!! Also, affectionately known as “B”.
Beyonce was born on September 4th, 1981 in Houston, Texas. She began singing at the age of five. By the time she was eight years old, she auditioned for a singing group called “Girl’s Tyme” which included child hood friends, Kelly Rowland, Latavia Robertson and Letoya Luckett. The group competed on Star search but loss.
This minor set back didn’t deter these talented young ladies. They went on to change their name to “Destiny’s Child” and landed a contract with Columbia records. After several successful multi platinum albums (and member changes), Beyonce decided to record her very own solo project.
Her debut album, “Dangerously in Love” (2003) went multi platinum solidifying her as an amazing solo artist. The album spawned hits such as “Crazy in love” “Baby Boy”, “Naughty Girl” and “Me, Myself and I”.
Her sophomore project, “B-Day” (2006) is her latest cd. It spawned the smash hits, “Déjà vu” and “Irreplaceable”. Due to the albums success and popularity, it was re-released as “B-day, The Deluxe Version”. This is an extended version of the same album with some of the same songs along with a few new ones recorded in Spanish. This girl is a machine!!
Of course, she has received an abundance of accolades and awards, however at such a young age; she is only getting warmed up. A consummate professional, this woman has no limit to where she can go. Beyonce will also be touring in a city near you beginning in August.
All we can say is this, Beyonce’s future is so bright, she and anyone she comes into contact with will need sunglasses!!
Corny, but true!!
