DSC_7283The 2015 Essence Music Festival was so much fun this year. The last concert was all about celebrating thought provoking music with the likes of Mary J Blige and Kendrick Lamar headlining the fun filled musical weekend. I got some dope shots of the final concert and some cool behind the scenes shots. I had an amazing time getting my party on and celebrating on of my first loves: MUSIC.

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.

All roads have led to New Orleans thanks to the Fourth of July Weekend and the 2015 Essence Festival; I had the chance to catch up with my girls Cynthia Bailey and Claudia Jordan as they got their party on at the Day Party put on by the homies over at Insight Marketing and the lovely Demetria McKinney. As the music played in the background, and the drinks flowed from room to room I got the chance to get the girls’s thoughts on NeNe Leakes surprised announcement about leaving the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ series.

Check out what the girls had to say below. READ MORE

I had the opportunity of a lifetime recently; getting the chance to celebrate the life and birthday of Congressman John Lewis. The birthday gala was held at Atlanta’s historic Tabernacle located downtown. The evening was a tribute to the life and great legacy of Congressman John Lewis.
