2013 Essence Festival Honors Tramaine & Donnie
It’s that time of year again! The 2013 ESSENCE Festival rolls into New Orleans for four days of music and empowerment this Fourth of July weekend.
For the Festival’s 19th installment, over 30 of music’s most respected artists are set to take the stage, including Jill Scott, Maxwell, Keyshia Cole, New Edition, Brandy, LL Cool J, Mint Condition, Charlie Wilson and Bridget Kelly. Also, pastor Donnie McClurkin and Tramaine Hawkins will be honored with a not-to-be-missed, stellar Gospel tribute.
In addition to the evening concerts, the ESSENCE Empowerment Experience will uplift festival-goers through daily seminars on healthy living, career and work advice, education reform, civil rights, relationships, style, beauty and more. Renowned leaders Reverend Al Sharpton, Rep. John Lewis and Dr. Steve Perry will be on hand to speak as well.
