Beyoncé To Headline Essence Festival
Beyonce will be headlining a night of the Essence Festival as part of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. Billboard reports that the R&B diva will perform the final set on one of the nights of the nineteenth annual festival, which takes place from July 4th through the 7th in New Orleans.
Essence Communications President Michelle Ebanks said, “We are incredibly excited to welcome Beyoncé back to the 2013 Essence Festival line-up. She is truly the ultimate Essence woman. “If you missed her tour de force in New Orleans, please join us this Fourth of July weekend so that you can experience it live for yourself at the Essence Festival. The Essence Festival features the best in music, culture, arts and entertainment — all of which Beyoncé captures through her extraordinary gifts.”
