Beyoncé was born on September 4, 1981 in Houston, Texas. She is an actress, record producer, singer and songwriter. When she was a child, she joined numerous dancing and singing contests before she became a member of the famous R&B girl group Destiny’s Child in the late 1990s. They turned into one the biggest best-selling girl groups of all time.
However, the group decided to go on hiatus a few years after. This was the time when Beyoncé released her debut album entitled Dangerously in Love (2003). She won five Grammy Awards and her tracks Baby Boy and Crazy in Love got featured in Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles. By June 2005, her girl group disbanded and she then released her second solo album entitled B’Day (2006).
That same year, Beyoncé pursued acting and she even got a Golden-Globe nomination for her performance in Dreamgirls (2006). She also got nominated for her starring roles in Obsessed (2009) and The Pink Panther (2006).
When she married the rapper Jay-z, she released her third album entitled I Am… Sasha Fierce. In 2010, her alter-ego earned her six Grammy Awards, such as Song of the Year for the track Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).
