Who Is Beyoncé?
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles, known as Beyoncé, is an American pop mega-star. She was born in Houston, TX, in 1981.
When she was nine, she formed a singing, rapping, and dancing girl group named Destiny’s Child. Remarkably, Destiny’s Child kept ascending and was a popular R&B group by the late ’90s.
By then, Beyoncé was writing some of the group’s songs and coming into her own as a musician. Her first solo album, “Dangerously in Love,” won five Grammy Awards in 2003. Since then, she’s been releasing hits like “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” and “Crazy In Love.”
Her music has embraced pop sounds, R&B, funk, dance, and Motown. In 2016, she released the acclaimed visual album “Lemonade” which has themes of resilience. Beyoncé’s skill as a live performer has helped her stay on top.
In 2008, Beyoncé married rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z. They’re currently one of the highest-earning couples in music.

Where Does Beyoncé Currently Live?
Beyoncé and Jay-Z live in a sprawling, opulent property in the Bel-Air part of Los Angeles. That house had a much heftier price tag – $88 million!
The couple also owns other properties throughout the country, and Beyoncé bought a house for her mother in Houston.
