As the ultimate triple threat (and then some!), Beyoncé Knowles is regarded as one of today’s top performers. Miss Knowles arose from musical beginnings; her father, Matthew Knowles, is the founder of record company World Entertainment Music. Beyoncé has been called a quiet, shy child but adored music and was enrolled in dance classes as young as age 7. Her dance instructor noticed a different talent of Beyoncé’s, and it was then she began competing
in singing competitions. She attending performing arts and musical magnet schools throughout her adolescence and is trained in classical opera. She won her first singing contest before her 8th birthday and her success has only grown from there.

Beyoncé is known for being a highly successful solo artist as well as one-third of the enormously popular former girl group, Destiny’s Child. The group shot to stardom, with Beyoncé leading the way. After winning numerous Grammy’s, World Music Awards, and MTV Video Awards, the girls announced the separation of the group in mid-2005.
Beyoncé Knowles has gone on to much success. With hits including “Crazy in Love”, “Irreplaceable”, and the more recent “Single Ladies” and “Halo” as well as nominations and awards including, Golden Globes, Grammy’s, and World Music Awards, Miss Knowles has truly defined her place as a musical powerhouse. Despite her massive success, music is not the only thing on B’s plate.

She has been acting since early 2001, starring in the made for MTV movie, Carmen: A Hip Hopera, and has since appeared in The Pink Panther and Austin Powers in Goldmember. She held the award-winning role of Deena Jones in the movie adaptation of Dreamgirls. Beyoncé obviously adores these awards, admitting to Self magazine that she has a large picture of an Academy Award displayed in her home gym to motivate her, saying, “I look at it, and I’m like, OK, I have to stay in shape.” Her hard work is obviously paying off, with her name appearing in Maxim’s Hot 100 and People’s Best Dressed Celebrities.
       
Beyoncé, also known as Sasha Fierce (thanks to the release of her hit album “I Am…Sasha Fierce”), has had five number one hits as a solo artist alone! And her musical and silver screen achievements don’t end there. She is also a designer for House of Deréon line she and her mother, Tina Knowles, started in 2005. She is also an avid endorser of Pepsi, Tommy Hilfiger, Emporio Armani, and LOréal and it has been reported that she makes a hefty fortune from these endorsements alone.
       
Lately, you can find Miss Knowles with her husband since 2008 Jay-Z, staring in her new film Obsessed (also staring Ali Larter and Idris Elba), promoting her new album I Am…Sasha Fierce, rocking her “I Am” world tour, or pushing her House of Deréon line. One thing is for sure, this hit producing fashion designer/model/actress isn’t going anywhere and, we’re sure, has many more surprises for us in the future.
