His royal purpleness  is headlining the 20th annual Essence Festival, being held July 3-6 in New Orleans.  The purple one last took the stage during the Essence Festival in 2004.

Every Independence Day weekend, tens of thousands of music lovers travel to New Orleans to participate in festival activities.  The festival not only includes nightly concerts but also include empowerment seminars held during the day.

Organizers say the rest of the lineup will be announced later.

Clutchettes, have you ever attended the Essence Festival?

    He lost me with the Jehovah Witness stuff. Plus, Prince has not had a good album since Purple Rain and y’all know it. Whatever. Any of you Ladies would actually date him if he was not rich and famous? Look at him. Looks like a petite girl. Just saying.

    I’m so there! I saw him perform a few times at the Forum in Inglewood, CA. He still has it, and I can’t wait to see him in New Orleans.
