"If you missed her tour de force in New Orleans [at the Super Bowl], please join us this Fourth of July weekend so that you can experience it live for yourself at the Essence Festival. The Essence Festival features the best in music, culture, arts and entertainment - all of which Beyoncé captures through her extraordinary gifts."
