BEYONCÉ KNOWLES' (Xania) is a founding member of Destiny's Child, one of the best-selling female groups of all time. Born September 4, 1981, in Houston, Texas, Knowles is one of the most widely-recognized and highly-respected women in pop music. With many of the group's hit recordings co-written and co29 produced by her, Destiny's Child has sold more than 40 million albums and singles worldwide and earned an astounding 23 gold, platinum, and multiplatinum RIAA certifications since the group's recorded debut in November 1997.

Knowles has earned numerous accolades including Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, World Music Awards and the prestigious NAACP Image Award. When she won the 2001 ASCAP Pop Songwriter of the Year Award, she became the first African-American woman — and the second woman ever — to receive that honor.

Knowles' burgeoning career as an actress began in 2001 with the lead role in the MTV film "Carmen: A Hip Hopera." She displayed her comedic prowess as "Foxxy Cleopatra” in 2002's Austin Powers In Goldmember starring Mike Myers. She starred opposite Cuba Gooding, Jr., in 2003's The Fighting Temptations. Knowles will next star in Dreamgirls, a screen version of the smash Broadway hit musical, opposite Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy.

Knowles toured the U.S. for the first time as a solo artist in 2004 in support of her #1 multi-platinum debut solo album "Dangerously In Love,” which earned her five 2004 Grammy Awards, including Best Contemporary R&B Album and Best R&B Song for "Crazy In Love," her smash single featuring Jay-Z. With her five Grammy win, Knowles tied the record set by Lauryn Hill in 1999 —and later tied by Alicia Keys (2001) and Norah Jones (2002) — for the most Grammys to be won in a single year by a female artist.

Knowles is a principal songwriter and producer — as well as performer — on the recent Destiny's Child album "Destiny Fulfilled,” which was released on November 23, 2004.
