At eight-years-old, Beyoncé and her friend, Kelly Rowland, joined a group called Girl’s Tyme. The group performed on the talent show Star Search, but didn’t win.
In 1995, Girl’s Tyme was signed to Grass Roots Entertainment. This led to a contract with Columbia Records the following year. That same year, the group changed their name to Destiny’s Child. The first song the group released under their new name was for the Men in Black soundtrack. Their first album won three Soul Train awards. Their second album featured the song “Say My Name”, which won two Grammys.

The song was number one for eleven straight weeks. Their third album Survivor debuted at number one, and won the group another Grammy for the album’s title track.
Destiny’s Child put out a Christmas album the following year, 8 Days of Christmas. After this, the group members pursued more solo projects.

She repeated this move for her next movie, The Fighting Temptations, which she starred in and recorded a song for. In 2002, she was a featured artist on Jay-Z’s “‘03 Bonnie and Clyde”.
During the group’s hiatus, Beyoncé recorded her first solo album, Dangerously in Love. The album debuted at number one. The lead single, “Crazy in Love”, was Beyoncé’s first number-one single. “Baby Boy” also reached number one. She performed at the Grammys that year, where she picked up five awards. She toured the album & sang the National Anthem at the SuperBowl the following year.
Destiny’s Child reunited to record their last album, Destiny Fulfilled. They toured the album, during which they announced their final separation. They put out a greatest hits album and received a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. To this day, Destiny’s Child remains one of the most successful girl groups of all time.
On her twenty-fifth birthday, Beyoncé released B’Day. B’Day debuted at number one. The album won Beyoncé another Grammy. She then went on her first world tour. In 2008, Beyoncé released I Am… Sasha Fierce, her third number one solo album. The album’s top single was “Single Ladies”, which also went number one.
