The Beu Sisters are a pop-rock girl group from the U.S. state of Florida, consisting of the sisters Candice (born 1975), Christie (born 1978) and Danielle (born 1987). They were born in New York state to parents who performed on Broadway and from an early age the girls sang together. The family moved to New Smyrna Beach, Florida, in 1989 and, by the end of the 1990s, they had formed an a cappella act. Desmond Child, a noted songwriter, noticed the sisters and helped them to sign a contract with S-Curve Records.

First album[edit]

In 2002, the Beu Sisters' first album, Decisions, was released. Nine of the thirteen tracks on the album were co-written by them. The album includes the lead single "I Was Only (Seventeen)", for which a music video was filmed. To promote their album, the Beu Sisters toured as the opening act on Kelly Clarkson and Clay Aiken's 2004 Independent Tour.

Soundtrack contributions[edit]

The Beu Sisters can also be heard on various soundtracks, including Disney productions the Ella Enchanted, Home on the Range, Disney Girlz Rock, Radio Disney Jingle Jams, Radio Disney Ultimate Jams, the Lizzie McGuire movie soundtrack and DisneyMania 2. They appeared on the Because of Winn-Dixie movie soundtrack and also contributed to the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, featuring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, in 2003.

Looking ahead[edit]

In 2012, the sisters created an album titled Beu-tiful. It has many music videos dedicated to the songs on the album, such as "Definition of a Lady" and "Everything Will be Alright". A new song, "What Do You Do in the Summer (When It's Raining?)", was released to radio in summer 2004. The group still performs at venues in Florida, although they took a break when Christie Beu gave birth to a boy in December 2004.

At some point,[when?] Jillian Beu left the group, resulting in the quartet becoming a trio.
