For many, Beyonce serves as today’s most prolific performer. As such, it’s only fitting that her idol is the greatest to grace the stage, Michael Jackson.
Like millions the world over, the ‘Single Ladies’ singer has honoured the late, great superstar three years after his sudden death.
See what she had to say of the ever-reigning Pop royal after the jump…
When I was just starting out, my first producer used to make me listen to Michael Jackson’s live performance of ‘Who’s LovingYou’. 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.
