Solange – American singer, songwriter, actress
Solange Piaget Knowles was born on 24 June 1986 in Houston, Texas. Her father is from Alabama. Her mom has a French heritage. Knowles enjoyed music since childhood just like her older sister Beyoncé Knowles. She took dance and drama classes while still attending kindergarten. At five, Solange debuted with a performance at the local park. When she was nine, the artist already wrote the lyrics. At 13, Solange wanted to record songs but her parents refused to pay for the recording studio, thinking that she was too young for a career. Two years later, the teenager worked as a dancer with her sister’s group, Destiny’s Child. Later, she got a chance to perform at Christina Aguilera’s tour. When Solange turned 16, her father finally agreed that the girl has a talent and helped her sign a contract with Music World Entertainment.
In 2001, Solange tested her acting skills. She was invited to the TV project, Intimate Portrait. A year later, the young woman appeared in TV series, The Proud Family, Taina, and Taff.
