Michael Jackson Tribute: Beyonce Knowles Posts Letter in Remembrance of The King of Pop
Michael Jackson passed away over three years ago, but his impact on the music industry is still felt, even to this day. On June 26, one day after the official anniversary of his death, the "Love on Top" singer Beyonce Knowles took to her website to express how much his music has influenced her as an artist.
"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 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," she wrote.

"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 and just let it go. Michael Jackson changed me, and helped me to become the artist I am - Thank you Michael."
Beyonce wasn't the only celebrity to pay tribute to Jackson. The late singer's daughter, Paris Jackson, tweeted her remembrance on Monday, writing:
"RIP Michael Jackson .. Dad you will forever be in my heart <3 i love you."Leave your own tributes to the King of Pop in the comments below.
