Beyoncé's Tribute to Jackson

Superstar Beyoncé honored Michael Jackson at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans over the weekend, singing a special version of her song "Halo" for the King of Pop.

Before her tribute song, the songstress played a home video of herself as an excited 5-year-old getting ready to attend a Jackson concert. As the video played, Beyoncé told the crowd, "That night I saw my hero perform... when I saw Michael Jackson hit the stage, that's when I decided who I wanted to be."

Queen Latifah and Ne-Yo also appeared at the festival and shared how Michael influenced their careers.
