Beyonce was inspired by her 4-year-old nephew to take on thevoiceover role. Daniel Julez Smith, son of Solange Knowles, Beyonce's youngersister and fellow songstress, is a huge fan of the Nickelodeon show. WhenBeyonce told her nephew that she was considered for the role, he did notbelieve her.
Though Beyonce has been singing all of her life and hasportrayed singers in movies Dreamgirlsand Cadillac Records, she still foundthe singing for the Wubb Girls role to require some extra work. "The onechallenging thing for me in playing the role of Shine was her voice," Beyoncesaid. "It's really, really high, and my voice is deep and a little husky."
Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! debuted in August 2006 and is created andexecutive produced by Emmy award-winning Bob Boyle, who produces Nickelodeon'sThe Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom.
