I had so much fun covering the second day of the Essence Music Festival which was all about community, connecting, and fun at New Orlean’s Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in the very heart of the city’s downtown district. People of all ages, gender race, and class made their way to New Orleans to celebrate the 23rd Essence Music Festival. Guests were thrilled to connect with their favorite brands and personalities. The Essence Music Festival Day activities have something for everyone. Walking into the convention center it felt like a world within the busiest party city in the country. Guests were able to partake in activities that ranged from beauty services, edutainment from iconic personalities, and entertainment ranging from live music to celebrity performances to just a good time to spend the Fourth of July weekend.

Check out the images below.

Having a blast enjoying the festivities that’s associated with the 2015 Essence Music Festival. New Orleans has been a buzz with so many fun activities ranging from epic day parties to fun activities to celebrity sightings. I chose to spend the first half of my day checking out the talent. Essence Music Festival is the perfect place to connect with people and make things happen. I was so excited to meet these amazing talents in the Press Room.

Floating around the convention center I was able to see Biz Markie was rocking the Coca Cola both and invited Roland Martin to come out and dance for the people. Roland Martin dressed in a pink suit stunned the fans with an energetic dance routine to the beat of the Jackson 5. It was hilarious!!!

Steve Harvey had the crowds going crazy with his live Family Feud contest at the Walmart station it was truly epic. Fans laughed and cheered the contestants on. It was really epic!
