Born: 1990
Birthplace: Houston, Texas

R&B singers of the hit "Say My Name"

The music group Destiny's Child was formed in 1990 as a novelty group of pre-teen girls; by decade's end they had become a superstar female R&B vocal quartet. They later became a trio featuring Kelly Rowland (b. 11 February 1981), her cousin Beyoncé Knowles (b. 4 September 1981) and newcomer Michelle Williams (b. 23 July 1980). (Two earlier members of Destiny's Child, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett, left the group in 2000 and later formed their own band, Angel.) The group's top singles include 1997's "No, No, No," 1999's "Bills, Bills, Bills" and the 2000 hit "Say My Name" and their albums include Destiny's Child (1997), The Writing's On the Wall (1999), Survivor (2001), Desinty Fulfilled (2004) and the compilation album #1 (2005). After a 2002 tour the group split up, at least temporarily, to pursue individual projects. They reunited in 2004, but announced that their 2005 world tour was their last and that they would "leave Destiny's Child on a high note" and no longer perform together as a group. Beyoncé went on to a major solo career and later married rap impresario Jay-Z. Destiny's Child did reunite for a few songs on February 3, 2013, during Beyoncé's halftime show at Super Bowl XLVII.
