We’re just nine days away from New Orleans Essence Fest! Have you picked out who you want to see yet? I’m especially excited to see the queen of hip hop soul, Ms. Mary J. Blige! With ten Grammys under her belt, she has an arsenal of hits to wow us in the Superdome! She’s sure to bring a moving and empowering performance to the Main Stage on Sunday, July 3rd, so don’t miss out!
