Beyonce is about to go into multitasking mode. The "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" chanteuse will star in, direct and executive-produce an upcoming documentary about the singer, which will premiere on HBO on Feb. 16, 2013.
The premiere of the yet-untitled documentary will air less than two weeks after Beyonce's halftime performance at next year's Super Bowl.
The project, which will mix "video that provides raw, unprecedented access" to the singer with live performances, was announced Monday by HBO programming president Michael Lombardo.
"Everybody knows Beyonce's music, but few know Beyonce the person," Lombardo said. "Along with electrifying footage of Beyonce onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamor to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman."
"Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming," the former Destiny's Child songbird added. "This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home."
According to HBO, the film will span from the singer's childhood in Houston up to her return to performing after the January 2012 birth of her daughter Blue Ivy Carter with her husband, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z.
