To Celebrate Their 5-Year Wedding Anniversary, Justin Timberlake Sang A Special Song To Jessica Biel

"You have taught me so much about what a true love means."

Yesterday (October 19) marked a very special occasion for Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. It was the five-year anniversary of their wedding day and, to mark the big milestone, the former boy bander sang their first dance song to the Sinner actress and — naturally — it was adorable.


While Timberlake performed an original song as Biel walked down the aisle during their Italian nuptials, their first dance was to a tune titled "A Song for You." This is a classic ballad originally written and performed by Leon Russell, with many others covering it throughout the years. The version they chose, however, was the Donny Hathaway one from 1971.

The former NSYNC member shared a recent studio session performance of the song, captioning it: "#TBT to a late night freestyle session on a break in the studio - YES I've been back in the studio cooking! But, today is even more special for me because five years ago, on this day, I became the luckiest man in the world when I exchanged vows with my best friend. This song was our first dance."

"To my beautiful Jessica Biel: You have taught me so much about what a true love means," Timberlake said in the Facebook post. "I can't put into words what these last five years have meant to me, so… 'Listen to the melody 'cause my love is in there hiding…' #Happy5thAnniversaryWifey #ASongForYou."

Sharing the video as well Biel wrote: "My tender heart is yours, now until forever."

"How lucky am I?" Biel wrote in a separate post directed to Timberlake for their big day. "Even if he's initially skeptical, he always gets extra for me. #5."

Looks like we should change the traditional five-year anniversary gift from silverware to song dedications, huh?
