Beyonce Knowles was born on the 4th of September, 1981 in Houston, Texas, USA, as Beyoncé Giselle Knowles. Her African American parents named her in tribute of her French speaking grandmother. Beyonce has a younger sister called Solange Knowles (she is also an actress and singer).

Like many African American singers before her, Knowles started her singing career in her church choir. She was also taking dance classes from a very early age and entering singing/dance competitions regularly.

Along with her cousin Kelly Rowland and friends LaTavia Robertson and Letoya Luckett, Beyonce formed a group called "Girl's Tyme". Beyonce's father Matthew Knowles saw the potential of the ambitious quartet and quit his high job to manage the group. It forced the Knowles family to struggle financially while the group improved, but they were eventually signed to Columbia records in 1996.

The group became "Destiny's Child" and were an almost instant hit with the public. The four became three and lost two founding members Letoya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson after disagreements in the group. Destiny's Child released 7 albums over a period of almost ten years. With the great success that the group brought them, Beyonce Knowles decided to pursue a solo career and the band finished in 2005.

Her 2003 solo debut called "Dangerously in Love" was a great success. One hit single from the album called "Crazy in Love" featured the famous rapper Jay-Z. Her second solo studio album titled "B'Day" released in 2006 has also been a worldwide hit for Knowles.

Beyonce Knowles has also made a career for herself in acting with major roles in films like "Austin Powers in Goldmember", "The Fighting Temptations", and "The Pink Panther".

Beyonce Knowles is married to the famous rap singer Jay Z. The celebrity couple were married in New York City on the 4th of April, 2008. It was reported that Jay-Z bought his Beyonce a $5 million dollar wedding ring designed by Lorraine Schwartz.
