The first 2019 ESSENCE Festival lineup announcement is just around the corner, but while we wait, we can’t help but reminisce on a particularly unforgettable moment that happened in New Orleans during last year’s Festival.

Proud NOLA native PJ Morton is no stranger to the Festival, so when he invited us to his home for a one-of-a-kind jam session featuring music from his latest Grammy-nominated masterpiece Gumbo, you know we had to oblige.

Check out the video above for a quick flashback from the magical moment and then be sure to keep your eye on ESSENCE.com and all of our social platforms for information on this year’s lineup sooner than later.

See you in NOLA!
