The 2007 Essence Festival took place in New Orleans this past weekend. With star studded performances from likes of Beyonce, Ne-Yo and Ciara, the three day extravaganza looked to be a great event. Check out some of the pics from the various shows:
From most accounts, Beyonce’s set was a show-stopper. The ‘Deja Vu’ singer launched the US leg of ‘The Beyonce Experience’ world tour at the event; wowing the audience with performances of many of her big hits including ‘Baby Boy’ and ‘Get Me Bodied’. Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland and Ciara are said to have done great too.
Another day, another legal woe for R&B bad boy Chris Brown.
Despite keeping an uncharacteristically low profile over the last year, the GRAMMY-winning music star has still managed to be linked to a number of police investigation reports related to acts of violence.
