     Recorded on November 10, 2003, during the superstar's first international
 solo tour, Beyonce: Live At Wembley captures the multi-platinum performer at
 the peak of her powers.
     With a set list including her #1 hits, personal favorites, crowd-pleasing
 surprises, and a bootylicious Destiny's Child medley, Beyonce dazzled her SRO
 audience with the music, magic, and charisma that has made her one of the most
 beloved entertainers in the world.

 In addition, Beyonce: Live at Wembley comes with a bonus CD featuring three
 sizzling new remixes of classic Beyonce tracks and three brand-new Beyonce
 recordings: "Wishing On A Star," "What's It Gonna Be," and "My First Time."
     Beyonce has been touring the U.S. for the first time as a solo artist in
 support of her #1 multi-platinum debut solo album, Dangerously In Love, which
 earned her five 2004 Grammy Awards including Best Contemporary R&B Album and
 Best R&B Song for "Crazy In Love," her smash single featuring Jay-Z.   With
 her recent win of five Grammys, Beyonce tied the record set by Lauryn Hill in
 1999 -- and later tied by Alicia Keys (2001) and Norah Jones (2002) -- for the
 most Grammys to be won in a single year by a female artist.
     As a founding member of Destiny's Child, one of the best-selling female
 groups of all time, Beyonce is one of the most widely-recognized and
 highly-respected women in pop music.  With many of the group's hit recordings
 co-written and co-produced by Beyonce, Destiny's Child has sold more than
 40 million albums and singles worldwide and earned an astounding 22 gold,
 platinum, and multi-platinum RIAA certifications since the group's recorded
 debut in November 1997.
     Beyonce's burgeoning career as an actress began in 2001 with the lead role
 in the MTV film "Carmen: A Hip Hopera."  She displayed her comedic prowess as
 "Foxxy Cleopatra" in 2002's "Austin Powers In Goldmember," starring Mike
 Myers.  She starred opposite Cuba Gooding, Jr., in 2003's "The Fighting
 Temptations."  Her next film project, which begins filming on May 10, 2004, is
 a prequel to "The Pink Panther," starring Steve Martin as "Inspector Clouseau"
 and Beyonce as "Xania."
     Beyonce has earned numerous accolades including Grammy Awards, American
 Music Awards, World Music Awards, and the prestigious NAACP Image Award.  When
 Beyonce won the 2001 ASCAP Pop Songwriter of the Year Award, she became the
 first African-American woman -- and the second woman ever -- to receive that
