The countdown to this year's ESSENCE Music Festival is on! (Got tix?) 37 days to go! It's like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, Jill Scott, Chaka Khan, Trey Songz, Fantasia and New Edition all in the same weekend! But what really has our hearts racing is Usher, who'll be performing on Friday, July 1! OMG! Check out a playlist of our our favorite Usher videos...
