You've seen the body. You've seen the dance moves. But this 2017 ESSENCE Festival performer also has a voice to rival the best of them.

In less than 5 months, we’ll get to see Teyana Taylor light up the stage at the 2017 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans as only she can. 

ESSENCE Festival 2017 ticket packages are on sale now! For more info about tickets, accommodations and the latest news, visit our Festival page here.

Mrs. Shumpert had her biggest year yet in 2016, but she’s certainly no amaeteur to the stage…or the booth! While we continue to countdown to our most exciting ESSENCE Festival yet, here’s a small taste of what Teyana has in store. Needless to say, she’s a vocal beast!
