2012 Essence Music Festival: July 6th Wrap Up [Photos]



Last night the old school met the new school at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA at the Essence Music Festival. Guests at the mainstage enjoyed performances from The Pointer Sisters, Keyshia Cole, Trey Songz, D’Angelo, and Charlie Wilson. The more laid back superlounge featured Stephanie Mills, Super Jay, newcomer Greta Prince, Marsha Ambrosius, SWV, and more.

If you couldn’t make it to NOLA for the show; we’ve got exclusive photos from the stage, and the press room. 

We’ve got photos of D’Angelo, and Trey Songz on stage so there’s a lot of eye candy.

Mary J. Blige, Shaunie O’Neal, Kevin Hart, Goapele, SWV, Stephanie Mills, and Q. Parker are just a few of the celebrities who stopped by to take photos, and answer a few questions moderated by the Essence Music Festival team.
