Essence Music Festival Lineup 2012

The 2012 version of the Essence Music Festival is bringing together some current names (Trey Songz, Raheem DeVaughn, Estelle, Mary J. Blige, Keyshia Cole, Gary Clark Jr., Ledisi) some we have not heard from in a while (SWV, Dru Hill, Stephanie Mills, Fantasia) as well as one dude who is creating a lot of buzz with his loooooong awaited comeback – D’Angelo.

Now D’Angelo hasn’t performed in the U.S. in a decade but has been getting his live game in gear with a series of dates in Europe (check out the rough video from a show earlier in the year later on in the post). Check out a recent article from MTV about the return. He still has his A game, which is great news for sure.

Hopefully a new album is around the corner for the soul man.
