The overall energy of the people at the 2014 festival was amazing. Everywhere I looked I saw beautiful brown ladies enjoying themselves. It was a cool vibe and the backdrop of New Orleans made the days even sweeter. This year was my first year attending, and one thing is for certain: I will be back. Here are my favorite moments!
I was fortunate enough to see Janelle Monae and Jill Scott perform. Janelle, clad in her black and white uniform danced across the stage and sang what seemed to be effortlessly. During one of Janelle's songs, a small section of hair fell from the front of her classic up 'do but she was unfazed. She is a true Electric Lady. Jill Scott wore a bone straight wig with Chinese bangs as she walked on the stage in all her 70's glory. As she closed the show, Jill transformed her voice into that of an opera songstress.
