Born on September 4, 1981, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is an American singer, songwriter, and businesswoman. She is referred to as "Queen Bey" and is known for her performances, voice, and boundary-pushing talent. Rolling Stone named her one of the greatest vocalists of all time, and her concert performances and contributions to music and visual media have made her a major 21st-century cultural icon.

When Beyoncé was younger, she began participating in several singing and dance competitions. As a part of one of the all-time best-selling girl groups, Destiny's Child, an R&B group, she became well-known in the late 1990s. Dangerously in Love, her debut album, was released during their break. The financially successful solo albums B'Day, I Am... Sasha Fierce, and 4 were subsequently released by her. Following the establishment of her own management business, Parkwood Entertainment, Beyoncé gained recognition for the release of the musically experimental visual albums Lemonade and Beyoncé, which delves into many societal subjects including womanism, feminism, and relationships. She became the first solo artist to have their first seven studio albums debut at number one after the release of the queer-inspired dance album Renaissance.

Beyoncé is one of the best-selling musicians of all time, having sold over 200 million records worldwide. Having won more awards than any other artist in the music industry, she has been recognised with 32 Grammys, 26 MTV Video Music Awards, 24 NAACP Image Awards, 35 BET Awards, and 17 Soul Train Music Awards. She was named the Top Female Artist of the Decade by Billboard and the Top Certified Artist of the Decade by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for her achievements in the 2000s. The highest-earning black musician of all time, according to Billboard, was her in 2014. Pollstar ranks her as the best touring artist of the 2010s and the most successful black touring act in history.

Career And Life

Beyoncé's parents, Lumas Beyince and Agnez Dereon, were French-speaking Louisiana Creoles with origins in New Iberia. Agnez Dereon was the daughter of Odilia Broussard and Eugene DeRouen. Because of her grandparents, Beyoncé is regarded as a Creole. Beyoncé is descended from a number of French aristocracy from the southwest of France through her mother, notably the Viscounts de Belzunce and Béarn families, who had been in the area since the ninth century. She is descended from Joseph Broussard, an Acadian militia officer banished to French Louisiana following the Acadians' expulsion.

The group continued to play as opening acts for other well-known R&B girl groups when Mathew reduced the initial lineup to four members. The girls went to many record labels for auditions before being signed to Elektra Records. They then briefly relocated to Atlanta Records to begin making their debut album, but the label decided not to release it. As a result, Beyoncé's parents split up, severely straining the family. Grass Roots Entertainment, owned by Dwayne Wiggins, signed the group on October 5, 1995. With the help of Columbia talent scout Teresa LaBarbera Whites, the sisters signed a contract with Columbia Records in 1996 and started work on their debut album under a Sony Music agreement. Shortly after, the Knowles family got back together.


Michael Jackson is cited by Beyoncé as her main musical inspiration. When Beyoncé saw Michael Jackson perform at her first concert when she was five years old, she says she understood her destiny. Beyoncé declared, "I would never have performed if it weren't for Michael Jackson," during her 2006 World Music Awards homage to him. Tina Turner had a big effect on Beyoncé, who stated, "I admire Tina Turner because she made her strength feminine and sexy."
