Dru Hill, who most recently performed at the 2012 Essence Festival, gave 90s babies some unforgettable hits like “Beauty”, “5 Steps” and “These Are the Times”.
Boyz II Men arguably recorded the greatest love ballad of the decade with “I’ll Make Love to You”. The Philly quartet performed on our stage in 2011.
The popular Bad Boy R&B group will reunite at the festival this Summer.
While LSG, the 90s group formed by Gerald Levert, Keith Sweat and Johnny Gill, didn’t perform at the Festival together, each member performed solo over the course of 10 years. In this picture taken in 2007, Eddie Levert (center) of the O’Jays stands with Sweat and Gill in memory of his son Gerald, who passed away suddenly in 2006.
Mint Condition have performed at the festival more that six times! We love their 90s hit “What Kind of Man Would I Be?”
Supergroup New Edition blessed the audience with an epic performance in 2011.
The En Vogue divas gave the crowd something they could feel in 2009.
