FNN Series: Black Legends On the Rise
FEB 1, 2013. Beyonce Knowles-Carter was born September 4,1981. Everybody says Beyonce is the greatest dancer and singer alive. I think she is too. Beyonce is very talented and intelligent. Her songs are very popular. Beyonce has been blowing it up since she was a teenager. She has a lot of talents.She has her own clothing line called House of Dereon and a movie career. Beyonce also used to have a very famous group called “Destiny Child”. But they broke up and ever since, she and Kelly Rowland(cousin) have been making their very own individual music. The rest of the group were two friends from her school in her class at her high school. They went on a lot of tours. Beyonce’s father was their manager. They went through a lot of problems with their first album in 1997. Then they became one of the most popular R&B groups.
Beyonce is a very good actress who starred in several movies such as: “Obsessed” and “Dreamgirls.” She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Dreamgirls. Everybody loves all her movies. Her movie career is very good. She gets paid a lot of money.
She has a dancing career also. She choreographs her own dances in her own music videos. She made up a video called “Move Your Body” to motivate kids to help them exercise more. I think that’s really nice and helpful.
Did you know that she also has her own fragrance and her own clothing line? Her clothing line is very cute but I don’t know much about her perfume .The House of Dereon is very famous. It was launched in 2007. Now Dereon has a successful store for plus size and non plus size women.
Beyonce is married to famous rapper and music business man Jay-Z and has a daughter named Ivy Blue Carter. Her daughter is so pretty. She has a good and beautiful family. She has a very successful life. In the future I hope can be successful and have a lot of careers like her. Beyonce Knowles-Carter is truly a great example of living black history.
