The 2014 ESSENCE Festival is officially over. More than 550,000 of you joined us in celebrating the Festival's 20th anniversary that included 150 plus speakers and more than 80 musical performances. 

Our musical headliners always bring it each July and this year was no different. Prince, Mary J. Blige, Charlie Wilson, Lionel Richie, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Nas, Trey Songz and more left their hearts on the stage giving us performances we'll never forget. 

As we get ready to start planning for next year (yes, we start this early) we want to know which artists you would like to see on the mainstage next year. Let us know below!
