Her solo career got off to a fast start, with her debut album winning five Grammy Awards and selling more than 11 million copies worldwide. She had shown an early interest in singing and dancing as a child, and she had routinely participated in local talent events. She had a pleasant surprise for her school's author.

She formed a girls’ group while she was still very young with some of her friends. Her father recognized the potential his daughter had and decided to become her manager. Her group, which later became famous as Destiny’s Child, went on to become a highly popular music group following which Beyonce ventured into an even more successful solo career as a singer and actress.

Many thew Knowles and Tina Knowles are her parents. Her mother worked as a hairdresser and salon owner, while her father worked as a sales manager.

She went to St. Mary's Elementary School and learned to dance there as well. She has always enjoyed singing and has done so since she was a child.

Motivated by the success of her girls’ group, Beyonce embarked on a solo career with her debut solo album, ‘Dangerously in Love’ in 2003. The songs included uptempos and ballads inspired by R&B and soul genres with elements of hip hop and Arabic music. The album was a huge hit which established her as a solo star.
