Beyoncé, whose full name is, Giselle Knowles-Carter, recently made history at the Grammys.
Here’s what she won:
She won her 28th Grammy, which is the highest by any female artist ever.
She was given the Grammy Award for her song, Black Parade, which is from her visual album Black is King. The song is a political one, and was released on June 19 – it’s the day that commemorates the end of slavery in the US. It’s centered around the Black Lives Matter protests and it was written after George Floyd’s death.
Also, Beyoncé’s 9-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, has helped her write a song called, “Brown Skin Girl,” for which the two won the best music video – making Blue Ivy the second youngest person to win a Grammy. The youngest is Leah Pascal, who won at age 8.
She is an American singer-songwriter and actress who achieved fame in the late 1990s as the lead singer of the R & B group Destiny’s Child and then launched a hugely successful solo career.
Although Beyonce is only 39 years old she has reached heights that have never been seen before. She has won 28 Grammy awards so far.
Born on September the 4th 1981 in Texas, she is married to Jay Z, an American writer and businessman. Together the two have a combined net worth of 1.6 billion dollars.
Fun fact: Beyonce is allergic to perfume.
