Nas, Trey Songz, K Michelle, and Jasmine Sullivan kicked it off Thursday night.
Prince shut down the stage at the Essence Music Festival Friday night. And had the whole audience rocking purple.
Jill Scott, Mary J. Blige, Ledisi and Tank hit the main stage. Michelle Williams, 112 and Marsha Ambrosius performed their sets at the Superlounge.
Finally Erykah Badu, Tamar Braxton, Lionel Richie and Charlie Wilson took over the final night. Plus Tevin Campbell performed for a packed out Super Lounge. FYI, Tevin still pretty much has it.
