All of our favorite celebrities headed down to the NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) this weekend to participate in the annual Essence Music Festival for a weekend full of concerts, conferences and parties.

The festival kicked off yesterday with performances from Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Charlie Wilson, Fantasia and many more. Taraji P. Henson, Lance Gross, Kesia Knight Pulliam and Hosea Chanchez were spotted in the crowd as well as LeToya Luckett and Slim Thug- who could possible be back together…hm!
