Read Beyoncé’s Tribute to Michael Jackson on 5th Anniversary of His Death



Beyonce to Michael Jackson - June 2014 - 01
Beyoncé has always credited Michael Jackson as one of her biggest inspirations. Yesterday Wednesday 25th June 2014 was the fifth anniversary of the death of the late King of Pop.

On her website – wrote an emotional piece of how Michael changed her and helped her become a better performer.

When I was just starting out, my first producer used to make me listen to Michael Jackson’s live performance of “Who’s Loving You.”

He would have me watch that for hours back to back to back.

What he wanted me to learn was his soul.

You could hear his soul.

And he was this little kid who hadn’t experienced love but he was a vessel. For whatever reason he could evoke more emotion than an adult.

It was so raw and so pure. It was these little things that he did that were just swag.

It’s something that’s God given.

Michael taught me that sometimes you have to forget technique, forget what you have on. If you feel silly, you have to go from the gut just let it go.

Michael Jackson changed me, and helped me to become the artist I am thank you Michael.

Love always,

    Well done Bey! It’s good to always acknowledge one’s sources of inspiration. No wonder she’s still doing fine with all the destructive criticism. *bowdown* linda pls post relevant nexw about Bey and not news of how she showed stuff to her audience in Miami for your ratchet commenters to start attacking.
