New Orleans once again welcomed this year’s Essence Festival and all of its attendees!! Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Janet Jackson were among this year’s main stage headliners at Mercedes Benz Super Dome!!
Queen Latifah also graced the main stage with a “Ladies First” themed performance featuring Missy Elliott, Remy Ma, MC Lyte, Brandy, Salt-N-Pepa and more!! The Queen decided to give the fans a twist by opening her performance with the sultry “When You’re Good to Mama” from the movie “Chicago” where she played the role of “Mama Morton”. For this all-star performance, the “U.N.I.T.Y.” songstress entrusted Adam Blackstone, CEO of BASSic Black Entertainment, as Musical Director!!
