Beyonce, who was the recipient of a controversial writing award recently penned a heartfelt open letter to singing legend Michael Jackson she she shares with her and his fans how his music has effected her life. Check out her letter below:

“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

This is the first of many open letters that Beyonce has written to other celebrities. She wrote one to First Lady Michelle Obama recently and was also given a controversial literary award from the New York Association of Black Journalists. The award was criticized because people were skeptical that Beyonce actually wrote the article that won the award.
