Kelly Rowland

A gifted and charismatic singer, Kelly Rowland rose to fame as the second-in-command to Beyoncé Knowles in Destiny's Child. With smashes that included "Bills, Bills, Bills," "Say My Name," "Independent Women, Part 1" and "Bootylicious," the Grammy-winning trio earned a place as one of the all-time most successful girl groups. Rowland achieved solo stardom with her Grammy-winning collaboration with Nelly, "Dilemma" and the globally successful 2002 solo album Simply Deep, which included the hit "Stole." She went on to record follow-up albums like 2007's Ms. Kelly, 2011's Here I Am and 2013's Talk a Good Game and scored another international chart-topper with her David Guetta dance hit "When Love Takes Over." Landing screen roles in such projects as "Freddy vs. Jason" (2003), Rowland also booked a slew of reality TV appearances, including hosting "The Fashion Show" (Bravo, 2009-2011) and judging "The X Factor" (ITV, 2004- ) in the U.K. Years after the group went its separate ways, she dazzled fans when she rejoined Destiny's Child for a reunion during Beyoncé Knowles's Super Bowl halftime concert. An immensely likable sweetheart whose star burned brighter overseas, Kelly Rowland remained a favorite for whom countless fans never stopped rooting.
