Art should not always be pretty, but it should be meaningful since it is not a thing but a ‘way’. A born artist is a star who hears the voices of the soul and responds to it, just like ‘Beyonce’. She is the singer and actress who can wash away the dust of everyday life from anyone’s soul by her heart-throbbing music and enchanting voice. As a born superstar on September 4th, 1981, Beyonce set off her career at a very early stage with R&B Group, Destiny Child. She outperformed not only in singing but also established her charm and persona as an actress both in the US and around the globe.

Beyonce was raised with her younger sister Solange, Houston Texas. Her father sold medical equipment and mother managed a salon in Houston. At the age of 7, Beyonce was sent to a dance class to break open her otherwise shy attitude, but her performance shocked the parents as they witnessed a confident and effervescent girl dancing confidently on the stage. Her gifted talent was spotted which later gave her that shot of success to fame. There is no quantification possible of the entire gamut of her talents as she had not only grown as a star but also congregated loads of love, revere and care from all her family, friends as well as from the fans all over the world.

Beyonce was an artist devoid of self-consciousness when performing on stage. There was no stopping her. By the age of 21, she had become a renowned face all over the globe and released her solo debut albumDangerously in Love in 2003. The summer of 2003 witnessed another hit song album by Knowles that also featured her boyfriend and soul mate, rapper Jay-Z. The sales of the album were propelled to multimillion figures. The world acknowledged Knowles’ ardent and adoring voice that could unswervingly touch millions of hearts. Grammy and MTV Video music awards fell straight into her lap. Beyonce remained unruffled with success displaying warmth and generosity. The young star appeared as Foxxy Cleopatra in Mike Myers’s Austin Powers series Austin Powers in Goldmember in the year 2002.

There was no looking back for this talented artist from here on. Her movie “Dreamgirl” in 2006 portrayed her as a singer in the film. Later in 2008Beyonce finally married her dream boy Shawn Carter (Jay-Z) and reappeared as a singer in the movie “Cadillac”. The couple was blessed with a child named Blue Ivy Carter on January 7, 2012.

Beyonce’s musical group ‘Destiny Child’ gained immense success in the early 2000’s. Her dynamic personality and mesmerizing appearance on stage have acclaimed her as the best entertainer of her times. Over 75 million records have been sold in her career of 16 years, which has also fetched her 17 Grammy awards. Beyonce’s love for music has made her one of the best selling music artists of all times and she continues to share her natural singing talent with the world.
