Happy birthday, Ciara! The singer-songwriter and sometimes actress rings in her 29th birthday today. In 2004, the songstress rose to stardom with her studio-album debut Goodies, which spawned three top hits on the Billboard charts ('1, 2 Step,' 'Goodies' and 'Oh').

The talented performer first captivated millions with her unique hip-hop moves and music, which landed her a Grammy award and multi-platinum albums. In 2008, the star was honored by Billboard as "Woman of the Year" for her accomplishments in the music industry. Today, Ciara is the proud mom of 5-month-old Future Zahir Wilburn. We can't wait for her next album (still TBD), but we're excited to see more of her dazzling moves and fearless fashion style (plus, more pictures of #mycalvins). In honor of the birthday girl, check out Ciara's beauty transformation.
