Known as the music diva, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is a singer, songwriter, and actress who was born in Houston, Texas. Her thirst for an illustrious career in music and acting began at a tender age as she performed in various singing and dancing competitions.

She climbed the ladder to success and joined the famous R&B girl-group, Destiny’s Child, and this is where her rise to fame began. At Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé led the team and it became one of the best-selling girls’ groups in history.
