The current year, 2016, has proven to be one of loss and tragedy. The folks over at Essence are clearly ready to be the bearers of Good News They are indeed kicking open the door of 2017 with a show that can be only described as out of this world. The Line Up for the 2017 Essence Festival has been announced. Fans will be more than ready to make their annual trip to New Orleans to experience their favorites live and in rare form. As always we are so excited that our Independent Artists will be represented and get the shine that they so deserve.
