Famous American singer, performer and actress, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is a year older today! See beautiful baby pictures her mother shared:
Beyoncé has always been a star, she performed in various singing and dancing competitions as a child and she rose to fame in the late 1990s as lead singer of the R&B girl-group Destiny’s Child. Managed by her father, Mathew Knowles, the group became one of the world’s best-selling girl groups in history.
Beyonce made her film debut in 2001 and quickly became a recognizable and respected figure in Hollywood allowing her to secure a role in the MTV original film: Carmen. Another historical moment for Beyoncé was when she earned the title of Songwriter of the Year by ASCAP, a first for an African-American female artist.
Beyonce has won multiple billboard awards and has received many honors from Billboard, in 2009 being placed in the categories, “Top Radio Songs Artist of the Decade,” and “Top Female Artist of the 2000s.” Just two years later, in 2011, Beyoncé reached the honor of being called Billboards’ “Artist of the Millennium.”
In 2010 at the Grammy Awards, Beyonce won six awards making her the first female to do such. These and many more makes the mother of three, a great achiever and we can’t but celebrate her on her birthday. Happy birthday Beyonce!
