Essence Fest Kicks Off Friday in New Orleans

Since 1994, the Essence Festival has been a concert filled with purpose and excitement for so many guests, and this year’s festival plans to continue the legacy of  “music, empowerment, community, and entertainment.“

This year’s Essence Festival is sure to be one star-studded event. Some of this year’s top performers include Diana Ross, Chaka Khan, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, Kelly Price, Monica, Solange, Jazmine Sullivan, Xscape, and many more talented guests!

No matter if you chose to use your time partying at the Superdome or attending Essence’s cost-free daytime experiences at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, all guests are sure to have the time of their lives.

As the legacy ensures, everyone who attends the 2017 Essence Festival will leave excited and inspired to construct a better community for their families and their communities.

Don’t miss out on “the party with a purpose!”
