Even with all of the other events that are built into ESSENCE Festival, music remains the main attraction for New Orleans family Kelly Jones, John Simmons and their son Skye. The trio attended the Family Day to lend their support for their friends.
John: We came out today to see our friends' band Water Seed perform. Events like these are great. I just wish that there were more locals acts that performed at events like this.
Kelly: The music is definitely what I enjoy most about Essence Fest.
