Your all access pass to Tank’s ESSENCE Festival 2014 performance is here.

Beyond preparing to perform new music for the first time, Tank’s performance was extra special because the winner of his #YoureMyStarSearch contest took the stage with him. Megan Broadnax beat hundreds of singers for the chance to sing background vocals for the singer on the mainstage.

“I’m a little nervous but I’m ready to do this. I’ve never been so ready in my life to perform. Hopefully the crowd is easy and accept me the way Tank did,” Broadnax said.

Watch below as she talks about the experience, warms up with Tank, meets Luke James, and prepares for her big moment.

Following her amazing performance, she headed backstage for an interview with executive editor Eb Jones to explain what it felt like to be on such a big stage with her favorite singer.

Definitely be on the look out for more from Megan Broadnax. Tank’s upcoming album Stronger is currently available for pre-order here and will be released August 12.
