As singing and performing transformed into ears and eyes of the public, Beyonce later joined her cousin, Kelly Rowland along with two other classmates to form the group called "Destiny's Child."
Since the release of Destiny Child's first self-titled album in 1997, through Columbia Records, the group later went on to create record timeless chart-toppers like "Say My Name" and "Bills, Bills, Bills." After a breakup in the group in 2004, Beyonce pursued a solo career, releasing hit records like B'Day and Sasha Fierce.
