The countdown has begun as we gear up for the 2012 ESSENCE Music Festival! Our sponsors joined us in New York for a grand kickoff to celebrate last year’s successes and look forward to another unforgettable event. Stephanie Mills serenaded us at our sponsor dinner in a sparkly red dress at the exclusive Bar Basque restaurant located in the Eventi Hotel. The next day, we wowed our partners with a presentation of next year’s programs and a surprise performance by Master MC Doug E. Fresh.

Check out the photo gallery and video from these exciting two days here and stay tuned for more info including a huge talent announcement at the top of the year.
