Her singing ability was discovered by her dance instructor Darlette Johnson during a dance class when he began humming a song, and Beyoncé was able to finish the song while hitting the high-pitched notes. She continued to excel in her music career, and at the age of seven, she won a school talent show beating other 15/16-year-olds in the competition.
Beyoncé, childhood friend Kelly Rowland and three other girls were placed in a group called Girl’s Tyme for a talent show when she was eight; the group didn’t win the competition, but they continued to perform as an opening act for other established R&B girl groups. When Beyoncé was 14, her dad became her manager, and the girl group eventually signed to Colombia Records after several auditions.
Beyoncé rose to fame in the late 1990s as the lead singer of Destiny’s child, and their hiatus saw the release of her debut solo album Dangerously in love (2003). After this, she has released other albums and has won 28 Grammys since the launch of her career.
Beyoncé is married to rapper Jay-Z, and they have three children together (Blue-Ivy, and the twins Rumi and Sir). In December 2021, Beyoncé appeared alongside her daughters — Blue Ivy and Rumi Carter — in an ad for her new Ivy Park collection, which was in collaboration with Adidas.
