Solange Bio

Solange Piaget Knowles (born June 24, 1986), professionally known as Solange, is an American actress, singer-songwriter, producer, and dancer. She is the younger sister of R&B singer Beyoncé. Knowles was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Showing an interest in music recording at an early age, she eventually broke into the industry at 16. She has released two studios albums: Solo Star in 2003 and Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams in 2008.

Aside from recording, Knowles has ventured in to film, modeling, and entrepreneurship. She co-launched the junior apparel collection Deréon, a sister line to House of Deréon that was established by her mother and sister.

Solange Knowles was born in Houston, Texas, to Mathew and Tina Knowles. Solange is the second child of Mathew and Tina, and the younger sister of Beyoncé. Her father is African American and her mother is of Creole descent, which includes French, African American, and Native American ancestry. Her maternal grandparents are Lumis Beyincé and Agnéz Deréon, (a seamstress). As a child, Knowles studied dance and theater. At the age of five, she made her singing debut at an amusement park, and soon began writing songs. At 13, she decided to pursue recording, but her parents initially advised her to wait.

At the age of 14, Knowles replaced a departed dancer and performed with her sister's group Destiny's Child on tour. During the group's opening stint for American pop singer Christina Aguilera's tour, Knowles temporarily replaced Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland after Kelly broke her toes backstage during a costume change. Eventually, at 16, Mathew Knowles signed her to his recording company, Music World Entertainment.
