This year’s Essence Festival was one for the books!
It had amazing sold out concerts with major headliners like Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Snoop Dogg and many more!
But the party didn’t end at the Superdome.
French Quarter resident Arthur Hudson was in the 700 block of Bourbon Street at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday when he caught a glimpse of hundreds of women singing along to Maze ft. Frankie Beverly’s “Before I Let Go.”
His resulting video of the dancing ladies, which he posted to Facebook, was shared nearly 10,000 times by Monday afternoon.
It was like a huge family reunion!
Many who commented on Hudson’s video noted how happy the ladies appeared.
“This moment should be in a scene for ‘Girls Trip 2,'” wrote one commenter, referring to the 2017 movie about four friends who travel together to Essence Fest.
What a way to celebrate Essence!
