This week Sunday Morning Live will air live from New Orleans and the Essence Music Festival.

While the lineup includes Kanye to Jill Scott, it’s the Terry McMillans and the Iyanla Vanzants I want to hear from as well as interview the people like me excited to make the pilgrimage here to the “Mecca of Black Womanhood.”

Already I met a Phyllis from New York.  She and 99 others have converged upon the Big Easy with Body by Denise a fitness maven who attracts 300 people per class to her work out sessions.  She is supposed to open each session at 10 a.m. so come ready.  Like Michelle Obama says “Let’s Move.”

I am here covering the experience for the Johnson Products team which is giving away tickets to the concerts all three days, every hour on the hour at the CVS on Canal Street near Bourbon!

Special thanks to Daphne Bradford, Renee Brown, the Team here in New Orleans, Sybil McMiller and the Essence Music Festival for all the hard work to get this done!
