Beyonce

This biographical profile looks back at the meteoric rise to fame of Beyonce, the former Destiny's Child star, who admits that life as a solo artist has been pretty good. She credits her family for keeping her grounded; and despite the trappings of fame, is grateful to have a life outside of being a pop star. Born in Houston, Texas, in 1981, she began winning talent contests at the tender age of seven. Her salesman father, Matthew, had so much faith in his daughter's singing ability that he left his job with its six-figure salary to manage her career full time. Destiny's Child, the group made up of Beyonce and her two close friends, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, hit the big time in 1997, and became the biggest selling girl group of all time in 2004. Since then, Beyonce has carved out a career on her own, both in music, as well as acting in movies such as "Dream Girls," and it's obvious there's much more to come from Ms. Beyonce Knowles. 2014 PJSCA 30 min.
