Each year around Independence Day, the beautiful city of New Orleans hosts the heralded Essence Music Festival, featuring today’s top R and B, soul and gospel artists. For three days and three nights, NOLA is overrun by music fans and local residents who delight in EMF’s Superlounges, Empowerment panels, block party and evening concert series in the Superdome, and this year, VH1 is packing our bags to join in on the action.
That’s right! Starting tomorrow, we’ll be on the ground of EMF 2012 with the cast of Single Ladies – Denise Vasi, LisaRaye McCoy, Charity Shea, DB Woodside, and Terrell Tilford – keeping you up to date as the stars take over the city and make their way through the weekend’s festivities. With artists like Mary J. Blige, Trey Songz, Aretha Franklin and Fantasia performing, you’ll definitely want to keep it locked with us as we keep you informed of the festival’s most juicy updates.
If you’re heading down to New Orleans or just want to be synched-up with the play-by-play of the Single Ladies cast and their #ESSENCEFest updates, follow us on Instagram (@vh1), Twitter (@VH1Music, @VH1 Soul, @VH1PR) and of course, check back here to get all the exclusive info you can feast your eyes on. Will the LisaRaye and Denise be partying at Kevin Hart’s exclusive birthday party, will DB and Terrell really let us know What Men Want, and will D’Angelo’s first full set in years wow them all? Only time will tell!
