And that’s a wrap! The 2015 Essence Festival closed out on Sunday with another explosive concert featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar and the queen, Mary J Blige at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome!
As I mentioned before… I decided not to attend for 3 reasons: I JUST returned from a long but fabulous weekend covering the BET awards, I was away from my family last year covering Essence Festival and I wasn’t going to spend another dime on the road. Experience is a great teacher and I’ve come to learn myself & this business more and more. At THIS point in my life/career… if it don’t make money, it don’t make sense and I will ALWAYS put family first (see previous post HERE). Don’t get me wrong… I LOVE what I do but have to make better decisions or I will be all over the place with nothing to show but a “selfie”.
Anywho, as promised… here’s a few pics of the concert I grabbed from Instagram and #flashback photos of the QUEEN captured last year at #essenceFest.
