In two-and-a-half hours of rare never-before-seen footage from 1992, being auctioned through Ted Owen & Co., Queen Bey is just 10 years old and already displaying the talent that would eventually make her a music icon.
The unique collection of 12 professionally produced Betacam video tapes show Beyonce before Destiny's Child, as the lead singer of the group Girl's Tyme. At the time, Beyonce was just 10 years old and already developing the talent that would eventually make her a music icon.
In the unedited videos, which document the earliest music video appearance of Girl's Tyme, Beyonce plays to camera in several locations, working out dance routines, rehearsing for a live performance and performing at an artist showcase in San Francisco.
Bids for the complete collection of tapes are being accepted now through January 10, 2017. The collection is expected to sell for $3.8 million.
Formed in 1990, Girl's Tyme included Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett. They later changed their name to Destiny's Child in 1996, inspired by a passage in the Book of Isaiah. Girl's Tyme's famed Star Search appearance is featured in the "***Flawless" music video.
