Beyonce Knowles-Carter is an American actress, record producer, singer, and songwriter. She lives the American Dream: small town girl who chases her passion and becomes one of the most loved musicians in the world. She rose to fame as the lead singer of Destiny’s Child, a 90s girl group which eventually becomes one of the world’s most profitable girl groups. The group’s hiatus gave way to the release of Beyoncé’s debut album, Dangerously in Love, which launched her career as a solo artist. Beyoncé married Shawn Corey Carter (better known by his stage name, Jay Z) on April 2008, whom she was rumored to have been dating since 2002. She has suffered from two miscarriages before finally bringing into the world their only daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.
