Hand-picked to open up for Beyonce on the North American leg of her “Formation” world tour, DJ Khaled, once upon a time was told that he would never tour, or touch a stage for that matter. In classic Khaled fashion, the eccentric DJ/producer wrote a heartfelt letter to Beyonce, thanking the megastar for her vote of confidence, while using that to inspire legions of his fans to never give up and commit themselves to their craft.
Here is a snippet of Khaled’s letter:
They told me I would never tour. Well I just finished touring with the biggest artist walking the planet. They told me I would never touch a stage in a high school arena. Well I just finished touching the stage in every stadium in every major city in America. Dreams come true. But you have to work hard, you gotta work very hard!!!
