- Destiy's Child Gets Its Start
Destiny's Child began when eight-year-old Beyonc� Knowles met LaTavia Robertson while auditioning for a kids singing group in Houston. Beyonc� Knowles, LaTavia Robertson and LaToya Luckett were later recruited by Music World's Management, Matthew Knowles, who also happens to be Beyonc�'s father. Kelly Rowland joined the girls in 1992 - the same year they competed in Star Search. Instead of showing off their incredible vocal harmonies on the show, they rapped!
Destiny's Child - Destiny Fulfilled
After the release of Survivor, the girls took a break from Destiny's Child and recorded albums on their own. Of all three girls, Beyonc�'s solo career turned out to be the most successful. Her CD, Dangerously in Love, released in 2003, had chart-topping hits like Crazy in Love, Naughty Girl and Baby Boy. Despite her appeal on her own, Beyonc� rejoined Kelly and Michelle in 2004 to release another Destiny's Child disc - Destiny Fulfilled.
Destiny's Child Gets Their Big Break
Destiny's Child's first album, entitled Destiny's Child, spawned their 1996 hit No, No, No. A few months after the release of thier second album, The Writing's On The Wall, LaTavia Robertson and LeToya Luckett left the group because of problems with their management. They were then replaced by Michelle Williams and dancer Farrah Franklin. But it wasn't long until Farrah Franklin kinda disappeared. Farrah Franklin stopped showing up for promotional stuff an

This urban R&B quartet was formed by Beyoncé Knowles (b. 4 September 1981, Houston, Texas, USA), LeToya Luckett (b. 11 March 1981, Houston, Texas, USA), LaTavia Roberson (b. 1 November 1981, Houston, Texas, USA) and Kelly Rowland (b. Kelendria Rowland, 11 February 1981, Atlanta, Georgia, USA). Knowles and Roberson first began singing together when they were only 10 years old. Rowland joined the duo in 1992, with Luckett completing the line-up the following year. The quartet adopted their biblically inspired name from a chapter in the Book Of Isaiah. Knowles' father became their manager and set about grooming the quartet for success.
They gained a strong local following with their street cool image and impressive vocal harmonies, leading to opening slots for big name acts including Immature, SWV and Dru Hill. Signed to Columbia Records in 1997 their breakthrough came when the track "Killing Time" appeared on The Men In Black soundtrack. Their self-titled debut, released in 1998, featured collaborations with leading R&B/hip-hop producers Timbaland, R. Kelly, Wyclef Jean and Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott. The funky "No No No" reached both the US and UK Top 10, and was followed by further hits including "With Me" and "Get On The Bus", the latter taken from the Why Do Fools Fall In Love? soundtrack.
The Writing's On The Wall was premiered by "Bills, Bills, Bills", a track which echoed the men-bashing sentiments of TLC's massive summer hit "No Scrubs", and even featured the same producer (Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs). The song provided the quartet with their first US chart-topper in July 1999, and also reached the UK Top 10. The album featured a greater creative input from the quartet, although they still relied on a heavyweight production crew including Rodney Jerkins, Missy Elliott, Chad Elliot, and Dwayne Wiggins of Tony! Toni! Toné!. Farrah Franklin and Michelle Williams (b. 23 July 1980) joined the group in February 2000 to replace the departing Roberson and Luckett. A month later the quartet topped the US Hot 100 with "Say My Name". Despite ongoing personnel problems, with Franklin leaving in August, the group enjoyed further transatlantic hits with "Jumpin', Jumpin'" and "Independent Women Part 1". The latter, taken from the soundtrack of Charlie's Angels, topped the US charts for an incredible eleven weeks.
Now firmly established as the group's leader, Knowles took control of songwriting and production on the ultra-slick and hugely successful Survivor. In 2002, she made her acting debut as Foxy Cleopatra in Austin Powers In Goldmember. Rowland branched out into solo work during the same year, enjoying a massive transatlantic hit with "Dilemma", a collaboration with rapper Nelly.
