Essence Music Festival--Day one

A while agoA, I blogged about visiting New Orleans to attend the Essence music Festival. However, what I failed to do was share pictures from the music fest. The festival took place 4th of July weekend, so these photos are loooong over due--pardon my tardiness. 

Anyhoo, these pictures are from the first day of the festival headlined by Prince. I am not  a Prince fan (to date, I do not know any of his song. However, his energy was so awesome,and I couldn't help but get into the groove during his performance. Janelle Monae was in the house too, but since I am not a big fan of her music (love her hair and fashion though), I left the main auditorium where she was performing to attend the smaller music sessions in the Super Lounge. 

The smaller  music session were more intimate and it was at one of these we got to know about an upcoming DC musician, Kevin Ross. The guy is totally awesome and you may have noticed him in Glade's holiday ad. He is definitely one to watch out for. My friends and I also caught Estellle performing in the smaller rooms and we were glad we stopped by. She has a great stage presence and gave a really performance. I grew up listening to SWV so it was definitely great seeing them perform live.  

One thing my friends and I failed to do was attend the free, daytime empowerment seminars. If you ever plan to attend the NOLA, Essence Music festival, you should stop by these sessions. I heard they are pretty powerful and inspirational.

Below are the pictures, enjoy..

Y'all know I had to dress super comfy for the concert
