For Melenie McNamara of Pensacola, Florida and Myra Crawford of Baton Rouge,...
For Melenie McNamara of Pensacola, Florida and Myra Crawford of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the ESSENCE Festival has provided the sisters with an annual bonding trip to look forward to every year for the past decade. With so many festivals under their belts, they quickly how hard it was to pinpoint which moment has been their favorite.
Melenie: The last time that Maze performed here and they received their Lifetime Achievement Award was a great moment.
Myra: Oh and the time when The Commodores did a reunion. Lionel Richie was performing and he brought out all the guys from the group. Milan [Williams] was the only one who wasn't there, but yes, that was a good one too!
