Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Announces New BEYONCE Fashion Exhibit
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will open a new fashion exhibition centered around singer, producer and entertainment industry powerhouse Beyoncé. The exhibit will open on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 and be located in the Ahmet Ertegun Main Exhibit Hall in Legends of Rock.
Highlights of the fashion exhibition include:
Rubin Singer leather and lace body suit, skirt, and jacket from the 2013 Super Bowl Performance. The Super Bowl performance was a 12-minute hypnotizing experience seen around the world. The exotic edges and curves of this lace and leather bodysuit spoke for Sasha Fierce and Beyoncé as one.
Singer, producer and global entertainer Beyoncé Knowles Carter was destined to be a star. Born on September 4th, 1981 in Houston, Texas, she began singing, dancing and performing in talent shows at seven. In 1992, she and her girl group Girl's Tyme performed (and lost) on Star Search. In 1997, the group evolved into Destiny's Child and signed its first record deal.
Writing about the group's 1999 album, The Writing's on the Wall, Rolling Stone magazine proclaimed: "[Beyoncé's] skittering, rhythmic, and hip-hop-derived approach to melody would help shift the entire landscape of R&B singing."
BEYONCÉ launched her solo career with Dangerously In Love (2003). Her rise to superstardom was built on her legendary work ethic, lack of complacency and pushing her art beyond imagination. She embodies the themes expressed in her music: personal independence, female empowerment and self-esteem.
BEYONCÉ'S self-titled 2013 album was more personal than her previous work. In just 12 hours after its surprise and carefully planned release, the album generated 1.2 million mentions on Twitter, reaching a high of 5,300 tweets per minute. Within three days the album sold 828,773 digital copies, making it the fastest-selling iTunes album ever.
