Anticipation is building for one of the biggest music events in New Orleans this summer, the 2019 Essence Music Festival. This will be three days of some of the best black performances from various musical genres.
One artist that fans are eager to see this year is Miss MJB (Mary J. Blige). She will be on the main-stage on Saturday, July 6th along with both Nas and H.E.R. There will also be a special appearance by first lady Michelle Obama on the same day.
The Essence Music Festival will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (1500 Sugar Bowl Dr) in New Orleans, Louisiana, from July 5th through 7th.
The 2019 staging of the popular New York festival, Groovin in the Park, will take place on Sunday, June 30th inside Roy Wilkins Park (Queens, New York).
This year’s lineup includes reggae greats: Third World, Beres Hammond and Sizzla Kalonji. On the R&B front they have added veteran singer Michael Bolton and most recently chart topping songstress Keyshia Cole.
It’s always nice to see commercially successful artists give back to their fans, even if it’s in a small way. That is precisely what R&B singer Fantasia did when she made good on a promise to feature pictures of her fans in the lyric video for her trending single Enough.
The video was uploaded to her YouTube channel at the end of May and it’s an absolute must see. Click here to check it out and remember to like, comment and share.
