I am so ignorant of popular music, I had too look her up on Wikipedia – that soon set me straight.

After a careful reading of her early life – I probably know more about her than most of her fans.

Here is the first paragraph:

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles was born in Houston, Texas, to Celestine “Tina” Knowles (née Beyincé), a hairdresser and salon owner, and Mathew Knowles, a Xerox sales manager.[20] Beyoncé’s name is a tribute to her mother’s maiden name.[21] Beyoncé’s younger sister Solange is also a singer and a former member of Destiny’s Child. Mathew is African-American, while Tina is of Louisiana Creole descent (with African, Native American, French, Cajun, and distant Irish and Spanish ancestry).[21][22][23][24] Through her mother, Beyoncé is a descendant of Acadian leader Joseph Broussard.[23] She was raised in a Methodist household.
