Kelly Rowland: Her Own Superstar


For years, Kelly Rowland has been in the shadow of mega superstar Beyoncé Knowles. She started out singing in a group called Destiny’s Child, which initially had four members. The group was led by Beyoncé Knowles, whose father managed the group. Latoya and LaTavia, who were members of the group alongside Kelly and Beyoncé, complained about Beyoncé getting favoritism and decided to leave the group. This left Beyoncé and Kelly by themselves until they eventually found their third member Michelle Williams. With Destiny’s Child only having three members, Beyoncé was still placed front and center. Although Kelly was not the head of the group, her talents did not go unnoticed. Arguably, some people would say that Kelly was prettier and could sing better than Beyoncé. After being a member of Destiny’s child since the age of 11, Kelly finally decided to branch off on her own after 19 years. At the age of 29 is when Kelly really began to pursue her career as a solo artist. In 2011, Kelly released first single “Motivation” off of her first solo album “Here I Am.” The single was the #1 hip-hop and R’n’B record all around the world. This caused Kelly to gain an abundance of popularity and fans. Currently, today in 2012 she is working on a new album featuring her new single “Ice!”
