Beyoncé may already be a legend in the music industry. But like all legends before her, someone had to pave the way for her road to success.
That person was none other than the King of Pop: Michael Jackson. And on the fifth anniversary of his death, Queen B posted a beautiful tribute on her website yesterday.
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.
Always stay inspired B!
Because while we all think you’re God-like, we all love the fact that you’ll never forget who helped you get to where you are!
And like what Michael Jackson did to you, YOU changed us all as well. Case in point: your latest album.
Check out the performance she’s talking about!
