She's sold 120 million records; charted nine #1 songs; won 16 Grammy Awards; headlined three solo world tours; produced records; starred in seven feature films (Dreamgirls, Austin Powers in Goldmember); and launched her own fashion and fragrance lines. It's hard to believe that Texas-born Beyonce Giselle Knowles took singing and dancing lessons as a child to overcome shyness. But her natural talent shined early. By seven, she was winning competitions and, at 15, she formed Destiny's Child with best friend Kelly Rowland. The duo quickly earned a recording contract (later becoming a trio with the addition of Michelle Williams), ultimately becoming the biggest-selling girl group of all time. After 14 years and a slew of awards, Destiny's Child called it quits in 2005 and - with irrepressible style - Beyonce has achieved even more phenomenal success as a solo artist. Hard-working, modest and likeable, Beyonce's beauty and passion for all that she does rubs off everyone she meets and fans around the world. With her career continuing to hit all the right notes, who knows what the self-proclaimed 'Sasha Fierce' will achieve next?
