Beyonce: a biography
Knowles was born in the largest city of the U.S. state of Texas in Houston. Both her parents gravitated to creative professions. Father, Mathew Knowles, is engaged in professional recordings, and her mother, Tina Knowles, was a fashion designer and costume designer. Most stage outfits for my daughter invented it. The Knowles family has a second child, Solange Knowles, who also became a famous singer.
In elementary school Beyonce showed a great interest to the scene. She studied choreography and vocal, demonstrating a great ear for music. With his first success, the girl faced when she was only seven years old. She was nominated for the award The Sammy as artistically gifted child and won a local vocal competition among the students. After that, the young singer could be seen in many competitions of young talents, with about thirty such contests she has won.

After some time, a little Beyonce became a member of girl dancing rap group girl’s Tyme, which included six participants. The main purpose of creating this team was to participate in the famous American television talent show Star Search. But the group at the competition failed, forcing the young singer to a negative experience. After the failure of the team was reduced to a Quartet, and the group headed by Mathew Knowles and renamed it destiny’s Child. At first, the girls performed the opening act for the popular at that time R’n’b-groups. But in 1997 was able to enter into a contract with a music label Columbia Records.
A year after the arrangements with the Studio the band released their debut album, which name coincides with the name of the group that quite often happens with the first Studio recordings of musicians. The album was welcomed by the audience with moderate interest. However, the song «Killing Time» became the soundtrack to the blockbuster «Men in black», and most popular single from the album «No, No, No» has won several awards as the best R’n’b songs.
Great success brought the band’s second album «The writing’s on the Wall» which became a multiplatinum following the implementation, as its sales exceeded eight million copies. This album includes such hits as «Bills, Bills, Bills», «Jumpin’ Jumpin'» and «Say My Name», which eventually brought the band famous and coveted music award «Grammy».
But, as often happens, along with the success came the misunderstanding and quarrels within the team. As a result, the composition was changed from a Quartet, the group became a trio, and the only member of both formulations proved herself Beyonce.
The new group released several albums: «Survivor» 2001, «8 Days of Christmas» is also 2001 and final record, «Destiny Fulfilled» in 2004. But despite the new award «the Grammys» and millions of CD sales, to repeat the popularity of the second record they could not and the breakup of the band was a matter of time.
In view of such circumstances, and with the creative desire to be as a solo performer, Beyonce starts her own career. Basically, she tried herself as a singer out of the band before. For example, recorded the soundtrack to the film «the best man» in 1999, sang and starred in the hip-hop Opera «Carmen» in 2001, played a major role in the movie «Austin powers in Goldmember» and recorded her solo single, «Work It Out».
