Mary J. Blige helped close out Day 3 of The ESSENCE Music Fest taking fans through a medley of hit songs and old school dance moves.
Alright Mary. Loving the change up in stage outfits.
Chick had the DOme on lock. She closed out with "Be Without You" and had the crowd sing "I'm Going Down" to HER. Sweet!
Earlier in the evening.....
Trey Songz hit the main stage.
