The Officialist was back for more on night 2 of the Essence Festival Performances. The Prince Tribute was amazing. The crowd watched and celebrated the life of music royalty Prince as a pregnant Marcia Ambrosius, Luke James and other artist played tribute to a musical icon and legend that will forever be missed. After the tribute the artists stopped by the pressroom, along with Prince’s close friend and mentor Larry Graham to share what Prince meant to them.
As fans roam from super lounge to super lounge to check out everything from hiphop, global music, love & R&B to artist who are hot right now, they all eagerly awaited the one and only Mariah Carey.
As Mariah hit the stage it was a non-stop party until the final song. Mariah look fit and flawless in her custom-made skin showing dress right down to her custom made Louboutin’s, everything crystal fitting to perfection for the queen of pop. Her voice sounded as good as she looked. She hit every note to perfection, reminiscent of her Vision of Love days.
