Mary J. Blige is gearing up for a busy summer thanks to Essence. According to organizers of its annual Essence Music Festival, Blige will not only headline the three day weekend but, will also act as a spokeswoman. “We’re thrilled to have Mary J. Blige on board for this year’s Essence Music Festival,” says Michelle Ebanks, president, Essence Communications Inc. “Her history with the Essence brand, both with the festival and the magazine, makes her a great spokesperson for this year’s festival and we’re looking forward to working with her over the next few months.” This year, the ESSENCE MUSIC FESTIVAL will celebrate the 40th anniversary of ESSENCE Magazine, and a limited number of special weekend ticket packages for the annual weekend of entertainment and inspiration are available now.
