Executive summary: Teen dancer and pop star
Most likely forever burdened with the tag "kid sister of Beyonce", Solange Knowles has spent her short life thus far training primarily as a dancer in both the modern and classical idiom. Her first taste of national exposure came when a last-minute replacement was needed on a Destiny's Child tour for a knocked-up dancer; Solange subsequently spent several years traveling with the band. Initially resistant to the idea, the tour convinced her parents that she was ready to undertake a big-time recording career, which was launched with the release of Solo Star. Collaborators on the record include her sister Beyonce Knowles, producers Timbaland and The Neptunes, and rapper Da Brat. Likely somewhere in here the word "precocious" will have to be mentioned. So there it is.
Being the close relation of an international pop star has no doubt done her more good than harm (that will come later); although still in her teens, she has already hosted programs for MTV, written and produced material for Kelly Rowland, and performed songs for the films Osmosis Jones and Scooby Doo. Can acting be far behind? Of course not: an appearance on the Nickelodeon series Tania has already started that ball rolling. Her favorite color is yellow.
