13 Times Kelly & Michelle Got to Be the Stars of Destiny's Child, Because Beyonce Didn't Always Hog The Limelight
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is without a doubt the star of Destiny's Child. Ten years ago the foursome-turned-threesome (with multiple band member rotations) decided to call it quits and the group proved to be a vehicle for even bigger success for its members. The post- Destiny's Child boom was especially strong for Beyoncé who has since sold more than 15 million albums worldwide as a solo artist. But that doesn't mean she's the onlystar. Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams have both done incredibly well for themselves with solo recording careers along with forays into fashion and fitness.
Looking back at the ultimate trifecta era of Destiny's Child it is quite clear that Queen Bey was gunning for the spotlight...though she did share it from time to time. Even nowadays Kelly and Michelle will roll up to a Super Bowl performance or appear in a music video for Beyoncé and the Internet loses its mind over it. There is still something so special about what happens when these three are in the same room together. Call it magnetism, chemistry, or sisterhood, Destiny's Child, even after 10 years after splitting up, still have it going on.
No one is disputing that Beyoncé always has been the megastar of Destiny's Child, but there were a few moments she didn't take center stage. Take a look:
