Recorded on November 10, 2003, during the superstar's first international

beloved entertainers in the world.

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

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
