Beyonce' made it known to the world, how much of an inspiration Michael Jackson was to her growing up, both musically and as a person in a beautiful letter she posted on her website.

Millions of people around the world were inspired and adored Michael Jackson, though we did not all grow up to be a powerhouse talent like Beyonce' his music had an influence on many that will live for generations to come. As a kid I grew up listening to Michael Jackson day and Night, I would try to perform his dance moves and even sing all of his songs in front of my mirror with my brush for a microphone.

As I grew older his songs became more and more an essential part of my music library, not realizing that he would be gone to soon, and all any of us would ever have now is the songs that he was able to record before his untimely death,

Here is a piece of Beyonce's beautiful Tribute to the "King of Pop" :

"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."
