London: Beyonce Knowles was determined to be as talented and famous as the late singer Whitney Houston when she grew up.

The 31-year-old singer still remembers the first time she watched the late music legend perform "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the US Super Bowl in 1991 and was determined to reach a similar level stardom, doing whatever it takes to reach her goal, reported Contactmusic.

"I turned to my mom and said, 'Oh my God, she's awesome!' My mom said, 'Yeah, baby, she is.' And I said, 'One day I'm going to be like that too.' My mom said, 'Yeah, baby, whatever.'

"But you just never know what's going to happen in your life because even back then I knew there was something worth fighting for and that I was going to do whatever it took to fight for it," Beyonce said.
