Per usual, Tweet delivered an unforgettable performance and even brought out her daughter to surprise the crowd.

When it comes to giving fans exactly what they came for and then some, R&B songstress Tweet is among the best of the best.

The talented entertainer took this year's ESSENCE Festival attendees on a ride they won't soon forget as she hit the stage in Walmart's For The Love of R&B superlounge, bringing the sounds of her debut album Southern Hummingbird and her latest release Charlene, to life as only she can.

Midway through the set, Tweet was joined on stage by her equally talented daughter Shenice, who stepped up to the challenge of performing the Southern Hummingbird standout, "So Beautiful," as the packed audience cheered her on the whole way through.

After running through a string of her R&B staples including "Smoking Cigarettes" and "Oops, Oh My," Tweet closed out the evening with a few cuts from Charlene, including "The Hardest Thing," "Magic" and "Addicted."
