If you're looking for the link between the music icons and the rising starlets of today on the 2018 ESSENCE Festival lineup, look no further than Janet Jackson and talented R&B songstress, H.E.R.
The 21-year-old California vocalist recently kicked off the European leg of her Lights On tour last week and she received the surprise of a lifetime when none other than Janet herself stopped by to check out the second show on the tour. Taking to social media to share a glimpse of the unforgettable moment with fans, Janet congratulated the young artist on her "first sold-out show in London" with a heartfelt Instagram post.
H.E.R. also shared the moment on her own Instagram page, where she thanked Janet for coming and for her words of advice.
Be sure to grab your tickets to see both Janet Jackson and H.E.R. light up the stage at the 2018 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans this July.
See you in NOLA!
