Brandy, Maxwell, Jill Scott, and LL Cool J Invade Essence Music Festival


Following last weekend’s BET Awards, the stars migrated from Los Angeles to New Orleans for the Essence Music Festival. Maxwell, Jill Scott, Emeli Sandé, and Chrisette Michele helped kick off the four-day festival at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Friday with their soulful sets.

LL Cool J, who is currently on his “Kings of the Mic” tour, took fans back with his hip-hop hits, and Brandy performed her classics including “I Wanna Be Down” and “The Boy Is Mine.”

Solange, Trey Songz, and Keyshia Cole are among the artists on tonight’s bill. Beyoncé will close out the festival on Sunday when “The Mrs. Carter Show” rolls into town.

Check out more photos from Friday’s festivities below.

    Brandy looks like an alien, she needs to stop it.

    so, basically if you dont like her look, she shouldnt perform, sing, and work anymore? so you will be more happy?

    how old are you, 9?

    or in any case, your life must be really sad to talk like that about an artist as her.

    Sorry about that, boy/girl.
