Beyonce is one of the most widely recognized and highly respected women in pop culture.

The Recording Industry Association of America also recognized Beyonce as the Top Certified Artist of the 2000s.
The critics have consistently praised her energetic stage shows likening her to the best entertainers of the past with her own brand of sass and class that makes her the artist of the future. ”Beyonce has a breathtaking need to entertain,” said Ben Ratliff of the New York Times and Chantal Eustace of the Vancouver Sun summed it up writing, ‘Beyonce twisted all the theatrics into her musical performance flawlessly, demonstrating her many talents as an artist.”
On February 16, HBO will premiere Life Is But A Dream, an intimate feature-length documentary film directed and produced by Beyonce for Parkwood Entertainment. The film provides unprecedented access into the on and off-stage world of the entertainer.
