The singer confirmed the news via Twitter that she’s been tapped for an All-Star tribute to honoree, Kim Burrell, during the 21st annual event, which runs July 2 through July 5. “Can’t wait to play #ESSENCEFest this year honoring one of my idols @KimBurrellLove!” Jazmine tweeted earlier this week.
Jazmine performed at last year’s festival, but it seems she’s even more excited about the tribute. “Doing this is such a big deal for me, I’m going to cry!” she recently told Essence.
This year’s mainstage performers include Usher, Missy Elliot, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Common, India.Arie, Charlie Wilson, and Kem. Tickets and additional information is available at EssenceFestival.com.
