Usher to Perform 'Confessions' Album at 2024 Essence Festival

The singer's highly-anticipated one-night-only performance at the 2024 Essence Festival of Culture promises to be a must-see event for music fans, alongside a star-studded lineup featuring Janet Jackson, Birdman and more.

AceShowbiz - Three weeks after the cancellation of the Lovers & Friends Festival in Las Vegas, the prayers of Usher fans are being answered. Billboard can exclusively report that the eight-time Grammy Award winner will now perform his classic album "Confessions" during a special one-night-only performance at the 2024 Essence Festival of Culture.

Presented by Coca-Cola, the annual four-day event will take place July 4-7 in New Orleans at Caesars Superdome. "Confessions" 20th birthday isn't the only anniversary being saluted that weekend. Under the theme of celebrating 30 years of "We Love Us", Essence itself is marking the festival's own milestone birthday with a star-studded lineup that includes R&B/pop icon Janet Jackson, a special performance by Birdman & Friends Presents 30 Years of Cash Money Millionaires, three-time Grammy winner Victoria Monet and eight-time Essence Festival veteran Charlie Wilson.

Tank and the Bangas will also be part of a New Orleans takeover with a curated performance alongside special guests and fellow New Orleans natives Teedra Moses, HaSizzle, and Dawn Richard. Another highlight will be a tribute to Frankie Beverly & Maze, who reigned as the festival's closing act during its first 15 years. "As we commemorate this year's festival, Essence will give flowers to the entertainers who started the all-white Sunday-night tradition," states the press release of the tribute that will also include a "passing of the torch moment" curated by Grammy-winning songwriter/producer Bryan-Michael Cox.

Major partners in the 2024 Essence Festival of Culture include AT&T, L'Oreal Group, McDonald's USA, and Target Corporation. For more information and updates, visit
