The Most Distinguished At Essence Festival 2015
July 2nd kicked off the annual Essence Festival in New Orleans. R&B, Hip Hop, and Soul were represented by some of music's most talented entertainers. Some sing, some dance, some play instruments, and some just do it all - a melting pot of talent was at our hands this year. While you may not have been there to see Charlie Wilson take the Main Stage and light up the crowd or see Adrian Marcel in the Hot Right Now Superlounge, we have compiled the top acts of Essence this year.
