The ESSENCE Music Festival is winding down and we are at the Superdome grooving for the final night.

Kem opened up the night with his signature jazz hits and was followed by the ultra-sexy Trey Songz, who brought the heat with his mesmerizing vocals and charm. When New Edition took the stage, the crowd went wild traveling back down memory lane! The one and only Mary J. Blige finished off the night with a powerful performance that lifted our spirits like only the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul could.

Once again, the ESSENCE Music festival proved to be a weekend to remember! Check out the pictures and see for yourself...
