Erykah Badu is no stranger to the ESSENCE Festival stage. With an introduction by longtime friend and comedian Dave Chappelle, the "On and On" singer brought that special E.Badu magic and energy to the Superdome and the crowd ate it up. Take a look at how the crowd received Erykah Badu.

We here at ESSENCE love us some Erykah Badu. So we didn't mind having her back on the Festival stage to help close out an amazing July 4th weekend, and neither did the fans. Attendees went ape on Twitter, and showed their love and appreciation for the head wrap-wearing, incense burning and always amazing Erykah Badu.
