The Essence Music Festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2014, and the legendary musician Prince is officially on board to commemorate the event with a headlining performance!
In addition to his headlining spot, the music icon also covers the magazine’s June 2014 issue, dropping details on his legacy, gave his take on mentoring and shares why creating and performing music makes him feel alive.
“I’m not putting down The Revolution, even though people would love to see us together again. I owe a great debt to them. But I’m doing something else…” — Prince
During the Fourth of July weekend (July 3-6, 2014), the Purple One will descend upon the Superdome, not only to celebrate the festival’s 20th birthday, but also in support of the Rebuild the Dream Innovation Fund Youth Empowerment Initiative (#YesWeCode) which encourages the youth to use technology mixed with creativity to code.
