They say practice makes perfect, and that’s exactly why music doyenne Beyonce has gone from Destiny’s Child’s successful lead singer to a bonafide Grammy Award-winning solo artist. And while we love to watch the star’s latest music videos seconds after they're released, it’s rare to come across footage of the beauty’s early performances.

Dressed as the musical’s iconic Dorothy Gale, the young talent confidently picks up the mic and nails each of the song’s hard-to-hit notes. Yes, the child star rocks the shimmery, bow-adorned costume like a pro, but it’s her vocal prowess that truly proves she was destined for stardom from a young age.
