In author Nansubuga Nagadya Isdahl and illustrator Tammy Taylor’s Beyoncé, a biography in the First Names series, meet the woman who changed music forever and showed that girls can run the world!

Before she was an international superstar and feminist icon, Beyoncé was a girl from Texas who loved to sing and dance. As a member of Destiny’s Child, she climbed the charts and became a member of one of the most famous musical groups in history. This launched Beyoncé into her solo career, and since then, she’s become an unstoppable force in music and pop culture. She has created countless hits, including “Crazy in Love,” “Single Ladies,” and “Formation.” Beyond music, she is a successful businesswoman and activist who helps bring issues of race and gender into the global conversation.

Empowering and inspirational, Beyoncé tells the story of the woman who showed that girls can run the world. It includes a timeline, glossary, and index.
