Beyonce gained fame as the lead vocalist of Destiny’s Child, one of the best-selling girl bands of all time, in the late 1990s. Beyoncé established the singing-rapping girl group Destiny’s Child (called initially Girl’s Tyme) with best friends when she was nine years old in 1990. The team has lost in the television singing competition Star Search in 1992, and three years later, it was decided to drop from a record deal before the first album came. Destiny’s Child’s fortunes turned around in 1997 when they signed with Columbia and released their self-titled debut album, which produced the hit single “No, No, No Part 2.” Their follow-up album, The Writing’s on the Wall (1999), garnered the group 2 different Grammy Awards and marketed more than eight million copies in the United States. The group’s third album, Survivor (2001), debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

Beyoncé began acting in the 2001 MTV television film Carmen: A Hip Hopera. During the 2019 remake of Disney’s The Lion King, Beyonce voiced Nala and played a few songs on the soundtrack, such as “Spirit,” an original music Beyonce co-wrote, and a cover version of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight.”
