Beyonce` Giselle Knowles, 27, past away July 21, 2008. With a life of winning awards, staring in movies, and singing in Destiny’s Child, Knowles lived her life to the fullest. Growing up, Knowles had the desire to sing. Even as an infant she loved the sound of music in her home.

At nine-years-old, Beyonce` founded the musical group Destiny’s Child. They soon became one of the biggest selling female acts of all time. Selling more than 33 million records worldwide, and winning a variety of music awards, Destiny’s Child left their mark on the world.

In 2000 the group took a hard hit and lost two group members, Latoya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson. Once the problems were solved, Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Willams continued with their singing careers. The group returned to the recording studio and released their third album, Survivor which sold 10 million copies. Branching out from the group in 2003, Beyonce` released her solo debut “Dangerously In Love” which sold six million copies.

The world-known singer has been recognized by many organizations such as winning nine grammy awards, four Billboard awards, four MTV awards, two BET awards, and the list continues. For example, she also became the first African-American woman and the second woman ever to win the ASCAP Pop Songwriter Of The Year Award.

Heading to a video shoot, Knowles’ life took an unexpected turn. She died instantly in a five car pile up on Rodeo Dr. Even with her unexpected death, Knowles had a successful life, and her singing will never fade.
