This 8-Year-Old’s Poetic Letter to Beyoncé Is Everything

1 minute read

A Redditor has posted a brilliantly funny (and hopefully real) letter by an eight-year-old summer school student addressed to world leader Beyoncé.

Instructed to write to a person they admire, the student likely rifled through the nobodies in the third grade course catalog and chose to pen a letter to the singer who once asked, “why did God give me my talent?” No one knows for sure, but this kid does understand Beyoncé’s uniqueness, and has produced a brilliant metaphor to illustrate the rarity of her magic.

“Dear, Beyoncé — my favorite singer,” the letter reads. “You are the best you are a rare rose in a garden of blooming flowers but your the only one who shoots out sparkle and lite up the sky. My favorite song is sorry that song be poppin I be turnt up.”

If this letter about the sparkle-shooting celebrity is legitimate, than the teacher has nothing left to give the class.
