Happy 35th birthday to Solange Knowles!

Solange was born Solange Piaget Knowles on June 24, 1986. She, of course, is the sister of the great Beyonce Knowles, but she’s a great performer in her own right as a singer, songwriter and actress!

What’s really cool is that Knowles actually served as a backup dancer for Destiny’s Child for a bit. How sweet is that?
