After learning about Beyoncé's life
I have gained a lot of respect for her.
She has worked very hard since she was
a toddler to become the outstanding and
great person she is today. She manages
to stay humble even thought she is known
worldwide, she sets an example for other
artists. People all around the world are fans
of the extraordinary performer. She has set and
broken unimaginable records and has won
many well deserved awards including the Billdoard
Beyoncé has touched and inspired others and
she will definitely be remembered as one of the
most successful entertainers in the 21st century. According to the conversations that I had
with some of my friends, they all know who
Beyoncé is. I asked them to tell me what they knew about her. They know that she is a
singer/songwriter and she used to be in the singing group Destiny's Child. They know she is married to Jay-Z and she is expecting a child.
I asked them which was their favorite song out of all of Beyoncé's songs and the most mentioned where "Halo" "Diva" and "Party".
