Beyoncé Knowles Biography

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles (born September 4, 1981), best known mononymously as Beyoncé, is an American R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, actress and model. At a young age she enrolled in various performing arts schools, and was first exposed to singing and dancing competitions as a child.

Early Days

Knowles was born in Houston, Texas, the daughter of Mathew Knowles, a successful record manager, and Tina Beyincé, a costume designer and hair stylist. Knowles' father is African American and her mother is of Creole (African American, Native American, and French) descent. Knowles was baptized after her mother's maiden name, as a tribute to her mother and to prevent the name from becoming obsolete, since only a few of the Beyincé males carry the name.
