We continue our celebration of 20 years of ESSENCE Festival by giving up-and-coming singer/songwriter Sevyn Streeter the opportunity to answer this question: What legendary artist would you tribute on the Essence Fest stage and what artists would you ask to join you?

"I would tribute Janet [Jackson]. I love her! On stage with me I would want Ciara. There aren't really a lot of females that could do a really good Janet cover. On an awards showing a couple years ago, Mya did a hell of a tribute to Janet and it was incredible so I'd have to have her. I was trying to pick all females but I'm going to pick a guy. I'd gotta say my brother Chris [Brown.] I know he would do her justice."

Is this a tribute you would like to see?

We unveil a new Essence Fest Dream Team every Wednesday, so check back each week to see who your favorite artists consider worthy of a tribute on the Mainstage.
