Beyonce aspired to be as talented as Whitney Houston.

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.

She said: ''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 - who has 16-month-old daughter Blue Ivy with husband Jay-Z - was thrilled when she realised a similar in-awe moment takes place animation film 'Epic', in which she voices Queen Tara, and was overcome with emotion and nostalgia when reciting her lines for the particular scene.

She explained to HELLO magazine: ''There's a scene in [the film] where the same thing happens. There's a young girl who admires Queen Tara and wants to be like her, and her mom is like, 'Uh, baby, she's the Queen, I don't know if you'll ever be the Queen.'

''I don't want to give the plot away but let's just say that's not the last you see of that girl ... I cried tears when I did that scene. It was the first thing I did professionally after I gave birth to my daughter.

''I really wanted to do this film to send her a message that she could be anything she wanted to be, it was an incredible experience as I was filled with emotion and hormones anyway, and here I was filming an incident that happened in my life.''
