Beyoncé (Little People, BIG DREAMS) (Hardcover)
Beyoncé was quiet as a child but always enjoyed singing and dancing. At a young age, she went to see a concert, and from that moment on, she felt inspired to perform. She loved putting on shows for the people having their hair cut in her mom's salon, but knew she was destined for a bigger audience.
After winning a local talent show, Beyoncé joined the newly formed girl group Girls Tyme. The band eventually became Destiny's Child and shot to stardom with their catchy R&B songs and fierce dance routines.
As a solo artist, she has since achieved incredible success with numerous number one hits, including 'Irreplaceable' and 'Crazy in Love', and several critically acclaimed and award-winning albums, including 'I am... Sasha Fierce', 'Lemonade', and 'Renaissance'.
She has received the most grammy nominations of any artist in history and is now one of the most influential people in the world. As well as being a performer, she is a mother, businesswoman, philanthropist, and role model for all those who want to reach for the stars.
