Destiny's Child: Then

One of the 10 biggest musical acts of the 2000s, Destiny's Child was formed by Beyonce Knowles' father Matthew when she was nine years old; she was sixteen when she, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett (pictured at the Soul Train Awards in 1999) landed a record deal in 1997. Three years later, just as their single "Say My Name" reached #1, the quartet splintered, with Roberson and Luckett being replaced by Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin (who was fired after five months). Still, Destiny's Child was unstoppable: as a trio (pictured at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2000), they had their biggest hit ever with "Independent Woman Part 1." The group went on hiatus in 2001 to launch solo careers, then reunited from 2004 to 2005 for the album "Destiny Fulfilled."
