Beyoncé Knowles

 The ever beautiful Beyoncé Giselle Knowles born September 4th 1981 in Houston, Texas. Her father Mathew Knowles born an African American and is a professional record manager, and mother Tina Knowles (née Beyincé) is Creole, Native American and French. Tina, a costume designer and hair stylist. Beyoncé has a younger sister named Solange Knowles who is a singer songwriter and actress.
Beyoncé is married to Jay-Z since April 4th in 2008. They got married in New York. They began dating in 2002. Before the two were married, Beyoncé and Jay-Z were listed as the Most Powerful Couple by Time magazine's most influential people of 2006.  My favorite song by her just happens to be "Crazy in Love" featuring Jay-Z. Another song "Baby Boy" from the album Dangerously in Love which debuted in 2003.  She was the lead singer for Destiny's Child in the 90's but they finally broke apart in 2005.
Beyoncé was schooled at St. Mary's Elementary School in Texas, where she enrolled in dance classes, such as ballet and jazz.  Her talent in singing was discovered when her dance instructor began humming a song and she finished it, hitting the high-pitched notes.  Knowles' interest in music and performing began after participating in a school talent show. She sang John Lennon's song "Imagine" and won the competition.

At age seven, Knowles started gaining attention from the press, having been mentioned in the Houston Chronicle as a nominee for the local performing arts award The Sammy.  In the fall of 1990, Knowles enrolled in Parker Elementary School, a music magnet school in Houston, where she would perform on-stage with the school's choir.  She also attended the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston.  Later she went to Alief High School located in the Houston suburban municipality Alief.  Knowles was a soloist in the choir of her church, in St. John's United Methodist Church..  She only lasted in the choir for their Church for two years.
