Description: Since I'm going all out and submitting some musical performers, I figure it would only be right that I did a female artist this time. Most of you know her well, and she is considered one of the brightest talents out there today. She started her career in a girl trio called “Destiny's Child”, and from there a solo pop star was born. You will learn “how to draw Beyoncé ”. Beyonce Knowles was born on September 4, 1981 in Houston, Texas to Matthew Knowles, and Tina Knowles. Here father is a professional record manager, and her mother is a costume designer, and hair stylist. She also has a sister named Solange, who looks like Beyonce, but with subtle differences. Her heritage has also made headlines for some odd reason. I guess tabloids find it interesting that her father is African American, and her mother is of Creole, African American, Native American, and French decent. As a child Beyonce attended dance classes which included ballet, and jazz. Obviously anyone that makes it in the music business has to be noticed or recognized for their talents at some point in their life right? Well, for Beyonce it was when she finished a tune that her instructor was humming, but what really raised an ear, is when she hit the high notes too. Since she was eight years old when she started singing professionally, and in the beginning her friend Kelly Rowland and herself, where a part of an all girl band named “Girls Tyme”. While part of the group, it was Beyonce and Kelly that made the most noise. Eventually as time passed they where discovered, the group signed to Elektra Records as Destiny's Child. The all girl group consisted of Beyonce, Kelly, and later Michelle Williams. From 1997 to 2001, Beyonce was on her road to stardom. When 2002 approached, she started making solo albums and even had some hit singles like “Crazy in Love”, and “Baby Boy” which featured Sean Paul. Nowadays she is the queen of pop, and she is still going strong. She also stared in a few movies, and has been dating Jay-Z for several years now. One of my favorite songs that she came out with was “If I Were a Boy”, that's a pretty song. Anyways, I'm sure all yo fans out there will like this tutorial that teaches you “how to draw Beyonce, step by step”. I will be back later with two more submissions, so try and stay on for those, or come back tomorrow to see what they were. Peace out people, and stay safe!
