LOS ANGELES (WTHR) — Just a week after Beyoncé's documentary "Homecoming" hit Netflix, her father has announced a musical depicting where she got her big break: Destiny's Child.

Mathew Knowles announced on his website he's collaborating with director and producer Je'Caryous Johnson to create "Survivor: The Destiny's Child Musical."

The iconic girl group has sold more than 150 million records worldwide and won two Grammy awards. Now, Knowles said he's giving fans a chance to see "an honest, behind-the-scenes look at how the greatest girl group of all time was created."

Knowles, who created and managed Destiny's Child from the beginning, will tell their story from his perspective in the show.

Johnson is a veteran stage producer who has recently created a live show depicting the life of Snoop Dogg and a stage adaptation of the 1996 film "Set It Off."

"Survivor: The Destiny's Child Story" is expected to dive into the hard truths and joyous moments of Destiny's Child through music and dance.

The show will premiere in Houston in spring 2020. Knowles and Johnson hope it will eventually make it to Broadway, London's West End and a world tour.
