The Life of a Songwriter

       The information I wanted to write about in music was examples of two peoples life which were Keri Hilson and Beyonce Knowles, while also writing a little of examples of how the music life works and how time and effort people have to do just to sing to others.
        Keri Lynn Hilson was born December 5th, 1982 in Decatur, Georgia. She started her career at the age of 12, but got her first record deal  at the age of 14. She started off in a girls group band called the D' Signe. After high school she attended at Oxford Collage University and Emory University for three years and studied to be an actor. While she was in college Keri worked as a song writer and background vocalist.
        Beyonce Giselle Knowles-Carter was born September 4th, 1981in Hunston, Texas. She started her career in 1997 with her old band Destiny Child. They eventually broke up in 2005 and Beyonce went on her own path and became a singer/ actress with her 1st child Blue, and her husband Jay-Z.  She moved to New York when she was just a few years old with her best friends Kelly Rowland and La Trivia Roberson. 
         Many singers have had some of  their songs written by other musicians like Beyonce has had a few songs written by Keri Hilson when I thought that many singers would either make their own songs or hire a person to do that for them but I guess that many songwriters are closer than I thought. 
         Keri Hilson and many other singers have a very adventurous and busy lifestyle, with having to go on tours and concerts all the time and spending time with friends and family. Many performers have to make the big decision like that to leave everything to make money for their dream. The tours usually take about a year for Keri Hilson but many celebrities can take longer or shorter like an example is Bob Dylan has been touring around the world since 1988.
          All these artist have a lot in common,  they all did something a lot of people don't really try to set goals for themself and became famous and made their dreams come true.
