LOS ANGELES, June 25 (UPI) -- Destiny's Child, the R&B trio starring Beyoncé Knowles that split in 2002, has decided to regroup with a new album and U.S. TV performance.

Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, who already have been in the studio recording, will reunite for a performance in September, with the concert taped to air Sept. 12 on ABC's "Pepsi's Play for a Billion" game show, E! Online reported Friday.

Pepsi's TV special, hosted by Damon Wayans, will award one Pepsi drinker up to $1 billion.
