Beyoncé Biography (Wikipedia)

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter (born September 4, 1981) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, director, record producer and dancer. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Beyoncé performed in various singing and dancing competitions as a child. She rose to fame in the late 1990s as lead singer of the R&B girl-group Destiny's Child.
