Destiny`s Child Group was formed in 1990,when we met at the audition seven- and eight-year girl Beyonce Knowles and Roberson LaTaviya. Soon they were joined by cousin Beyonce - Kalendriya Rowland, known to fans of bands like Kelly. A little later, the group has expanded its fourth participant Lethe Laket. In this composition, they held out until March 2000. But first things first.
The permanent group manager - Beyonce `s father Matthew Knowles - from the beginning believed in the success of this project. The group, created under his leadership, first called Girls Tyme, and was known to only a small number of residents of Houston, Texas. But thanks to Star Search, a special search program for young talents ,the young singer became more and more popular. Then they started thinking about changing the name. The options were few : Something Fresh, "? Clich", Borderline, The Dolls, - but a decisive role in choosing the name Beyonce played the mother, who just went and opened the Bible at chapter Destinys. This idea was first developed to Destiny`s Children,but in the end it turned out today`s name Destiny`s Child.

Already mentioned song "Bills, Bills, Bills", and "Say my Name", "Bug a Beo" and the most famous "Jumpin, Jumpin" make the album triple platinum ,bring him two " Grammy " and a number of other prestigious awards.
It would seem, what problems can be in such a successful band? But inside the long- brewing conflict. The culmination of " creative differences " was the departure of two of its member groups - Lethe and LaTavii. Their place was taken by Farrah Franklin and Michelle Williams. They first appeared in the group in the video "Say my Name". Beyonce and Michelle met by chance at the hotel "Atlanta" in January 2000, and at the same time Kelly Beyonce and Matthew Knowles offered the young singer to take one of the vacated seats. So she became a full-fledged participants in the third Destiny`s Child.
As regards Terah ,fans of the band were shocked when five months later she left Destiny`s Child. There followed a detailed interview with the participating groups and Terah, which states the reasons for the gap. But this time there were no serious differences and the parties went to the world, can not be said about former colleagues Destiny`s Child - LaTavii and Lethe. They filed a lawsuit against the group, accusing the ex-girlfriends in the destruction of their careers, and the manager - in assigning their profits.
A year later, the case against Beyonce and Kelly`s was closed. But proceeding with Matthew Knowles has not yet ended.
Lethe and LaTaviya engaged in a new project - a group of Angel; It says Farr will also record a solo album. But all these troubles did not break motivated Destiny`s Child. After the departure of Terah, they announced that the search for a replacement is not collected. So the quartet became a trio. In summing up the 2000 Billboard Year-End Charts group was in first place in six categories. In March 2001, he was released the first single from the eponymous album, Survivor, and in April a video clip for the song made it to first place in the MTV Top 20 and has since become the leading positions in the rankings.
