The Essence Festival is here and it’s in full effect. I love this time of year because it’s an opportunity to merge two of my favorite things: Travel and Music. I had the opportunity to see one of my favorite singers of all time the beautiful Mariah Carey and support the homies Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat at the Saturday night concert. The Mercedes-Benz Superdome was amped and everyone was over-joyed to see Mariah Carey perform live and in living color.
Check out the details after the break.
Mariah Carey closed out the second night of the 2016 Essence Music Festival. The starlet has been busy balancing motherhood, a new relationship, and her every evolving and dynamic career. Fans all over the country were excited to learn that Mariah Carey was going to be present at the Essence Music Festival.
Mariah Carey has been busy working in the studio with So So Def Music Mogul Jermaine Dupri for her forthcoming album. I had the opportunity to sit in on some of the work and they are making music magic happen yet again.
Mariah Carey’s 2016 Essence Music Festival was a So So Def reunion of sorts because Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat joined Mariah on stage for several of their classic hits that delighted fans.
Mariah presented a dope show that involved various wardrobe changes, a hilarious lap dance segment and some of the best music of our generation.
