Time to reveal some secrets about Destiny's Child
Destiny's Child is known as follows: Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams. The girl group began their career in 1990 as Girl's Tyme. They went through so much and they tried non-stop to get to where they are right now and their story is known to almost everyone whether you are a Destiny's Child fan or not! After many fails, they managed to sign to Columbia Records. They gained success with their singles Bills, Bills, Bills and Say My Name. In 2002 the group announced its hiatus but they reunite every now and then. Here are some secrets about Destiny's Child.
Thinking about the fact that the father of Beyonce was the one managing the group, you might think if everything was fair!
Well, we’ve got to tell you that it was not! J. Randy Taraborrelli mentioned that Mathew favored his daughter and while LeToya could not pay her phone bill, Beyonce was driving a sports car!
After Kelly Rowland’s mother left her drunk and abusive partner, Kelly moved in with Beyonce’s family and they acted as her guardians.
Solange said: "Kelly Rowland actually grew up with us. She moved in when she was five and so we have sort of a blended family. I’ve only ever looked at her as a sister. I think adoption is a beautiful thing."
Another thing is the fact that Mathew Knowles gave up his job in order to be able to manage the group fully!
He said: "I was working for Xerox (selling medical equipment) when my passion for it died. After a surgery, the surgeon, my client, said, 'Knowles, I have the highest operating costs'."
'I need to get those costs down'. That’s when I realized I had no more passion when it was all about cost."
"At the same time, I was being a dad, taking my girls to dance and vocal lessons. My former wife was an entrepreneur with her hair salon, and Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays were her busiest days, so I would do those chores, and I enjoyed them."
Then when the girls were on 'Star Search' and didn’t win, I asked Ed McMahon,'My girls are crying, what do I tell them?'"
"And he said, 'Everyone that consistently wins when they finish, you never hear from them professionally'."
"Those that lose, some go back, refocus, rededicate and make important changes. So that’s when I got involved, went to school and went to every seminar."
The song that received the group’s first Grammy Award "Say My Name" was based on the true story of Beyonce and her ex Lyndall Locke who cheated on her.
Another thing that you may not know is that Solange almost becomes the fourth member of the group.
The group also sang as the backup for Solange in the theme song of a Disney animation called The Proud Family.
The two original members of the group LaTavia and LeToya were kicked out of the group and there are some speculations that blame Twins Brandon and Brian Casey for this since they were dating.
LaTavia and LeToya, later on, found out that they were kicked out of the group after they saw the video of "Say My Name."
Farrah Franklin and Michelle Williams joined the group and they started right away!
Destiny's Child was first signed to Elektra Records. They believed that they were too young and undeveloped.
