Beyoncé Knowles first appeared on the music scene in the late '90s as a member of Destiny's Child, one of the biggest selling girl groups of all time.

In 2003, Knowles launched her solo career with smash hit single 'Crazy In Love', beginning a career that would win her 12 solo top 10 hits in the Billboard Top 100, 14 solo top 10 hits in the UK, 14 solo Grammy awards and the title of the RIAA's most successful female artist of the 2000s. She was the half-time act at the Super Bowl in February 2013, reuniting with Destiny's Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland.

Knowles has also appeared in several high profile films, most notably Austin Powers In Goldmember and The Pink Panther, all the while maintaining a successful long-term relationship with rapper Jay Z, who she married in April 2008. The couple welcomed their first child Blue Ivy Carter in January 2012, and will tour North America together for the first time as co-headliners in summer 2014.
