Need help with this sentence... thanks

Before her singing career took off,......
What word could I replace the phrase "took off" with?
I was gonna say progressed but it does not seem to have the same effect...
If that doesn't work, then look up "flourish" at http://www.thesaurus.com and see what its synonyms are.
Thank you.. i did try the thesaurus.... you suggestion sounds pretty good .. thx again
