Beyoncé rose to prominence in the late ‘90s as the lead singer of the pop-R&B group Destiny’s Child. Born on September 4, 1981, she began singing at a young age, competing in local talent competitions, and won many of them by wowing audiences with her singing and dancing skills. Her parents soon recognized that performing made their daughter happy and that she was talented enough to succeed. Knowles then auditioned for Girl’s Tyme when she was nine years old. She was then accepted into the group and began performing with them at local events after winning a spot.

Knowles created Destiny’s Child with her cousin Kelly Rowland and two classmates. With their second album, Bills, Bills, Bills, the trio scored their first No. 1 single on the pop charts. Knowles left the group and started her solo debut in 2003 with the arrival of Dangerously in Love. The album was a big success and raised her degree in the 2000s. Indeed, she grew up to become one of the most famous female artists of the decade.
