Beyonce: What I'm Thankful For

"A lot of us didn't know each other when we made the band three years ago," said band member Divinity Roxx, who plays bass. "I have grown as a musician in these past three years. I have grown as a person."

"You have to grow because as she gets better, we have to get better. It's like, everybody has to step their game up," said drummer Nikki Glaspie.

Beyonce has grown from a talented 9-year-old to the lead singer in the girl group Destiny's Child into a pop icon, at the helm of a thriving business empire. She's been ranked as one of the world's most powerful celebrities by Forbes, reportedly earning an estimated $87 million in 2009.

"There would definitely not be a Beyonce without Destiny's Child. I love my girls," she said.

From "Star Search" to Forbes Celebrity 100, Beyonce has continued to come out on top.

"I don't like to gamble, but if there is one thing I'm willing to bet on is myself," she said.

ABC's special television event begins on Thanksgiving night, Nov. 26, at 9 p.m. ET with "Beyonce: I Am... Yours." "Paul McCartney: Good Evening New York City" airs at 10 p.m. ET.
