Beyonce Pays Tribute to Michael Jackson on 5-Year Anniversary of His Passing

Yesterday marked the five-year anniversary of the passing of one of the world's greatest entertainers of all time, Michael Jackson. Superstar Beyonce took time out from the launch of her 'On the Run' tour to pay tribute to Jackson in a sentimental note posted on her official website.

The tribute reads as follows:

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,
B
