Based on exhaustive research by Taraborrelli, including exclusive interviews with the people in the superstar’s life who have been pivotal to her personal and professional development, the biography will explore all facets of Knowles’ life. Beginning with her career at the age of seven performing in pageant shows and talent contests and recording her first number one hit record at the age of 18 with her group, Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé has become one of the most successful solo artists of her generation appearing in 2014 on the cover of Time Magazine and at the #1 spot on Forbes’ annual list of the wealthiest celebrities.
"I can't think of a more intriguing subject than Beyoncé," said Taraborrelli. "In terms of research, there's no road map to follow since this is the first major biography. Therefore, we're breaking new ground with every chapter. From Destiny's Child to solo superstardom to her marriage to JayÂ‐Z, Beyoncé has lived a most incredible, inspiring life. I know my readers will enjoy her journey."
Jamie Raab said of the book, “Having written the definitive biographies of music icons Madonna, Michael Jackson and Diana Ross, Randy is the perfect biographer to write about the life and career of Beyoncé Knowles.”
