… This weekend more so than most because of the Essence Music Festival. The who’s who in music will be in the NOLA to put it down! All the big names from Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, and Jill Scott to Chaka Khan, Boyz II Men and New Edition performing through the entire July 4th long weekend.
The Festival is also a “party with a purpose” showcasing Empowerment Seminars sponsored by MyBlackIsBeautiful and hosted by a lineup of celebrities. This component of the music weekend will focus on ‘our people’ and cover such topics as; Getting your life back, Black men uncensored, Secrets to a happy marriage, Love, Sex and Drama, Informed and In Charge: Sex in the Era of HIV, several education seminars and much more.
The Big Easy is most definitely the place to be this weekend!
