The line-up for this year’s Essence Music Festival in New Orleans has just been announced, and as usual the event will feature some of the industry’s biggest names.

From Essence Magazine:

Mary J. Blige, Aretha Franklin, Fantasia, and Keyshia Cole are just a few of the names we’re excited to see take the stage at the Superdome come Fourth of July weekend in the Big Easy. 

This year’s festival celebrates the “power of our voices” with sure-to-be breathtaking performances from the likes of Franklin and Blige, plus empowerment seminars by Steve Harvey and Rep. Maxine Waters. 

Other acts on the bill include Ledisi, Charlie Wilson, Raheem DeVaughn, Estelle, SWV, Stephanie Mills, Eric Roberson, and a host of others too long to list.

The Essence Music Festival has been on my “bucket list” for years, and with this lineup maybe it’s time for me to finally get down there.

What about you? Have you or will you attend the Essence Music Festival?
