The stars came out this weekend as they celebrated the annual Essence Festival 2013. Essence has been the staple magazine representing people of color. For as long as I can remember, there has not been one African-American home who didn't have a bundle of Essence Magazines in their home, preferably their bathroom or living room table.

The weekend brought out many of your favorite athletes, singers, actors/actresses, models and TV personalities to celebrate the Essence brand worldwide. Everything from good music, food and talk all served as entertaining ingredients to complete the annual festival as always.
