Biography (from Wikipedia):
Destiny’s Child was an American R&B girl group whose final line-up comprised lead singer Beyoncé Knowles, second-lead singer Kelly Rowland and backup singer Michelle Williams. Formed in 1990 in Houston, Texas, Destiny’s Child members began their musical endeavors in their pre-teens under the name Girl’s Tyme. After years of performing underground, they were signed to Columbia Records as Destiny’s Child, comprising Knowles, Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett.
Destiny’s Child was launched into mainstream recognition following the release of their best-selling second album, The Writing’s on the Wall, which contained the number-one singles “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Say My Name”. Despite critical and commercial success, the group was plagued by internal conflict and legal turmoil, as Roberson and Luckett attempted to split off the group’s manager Mathew Knowles. They were soon replaced with Williams and Farrah Franklin; however, in 2000, Franklin was dismissed, leaving them as a trio. Their third album, Survivor, which contains themes the public interpreted as a channel to the group’s experience, contains the worldwide hits “Independent Women”, “Survivor” and “Bootylicious”. In 2002, they announced a hiatus and re-united two years later for the release of their fourth studio album, Destiny Fulfilled (2004).
