Essence announced this morning that Janet Jackson will be headlining live one of the days during the 2010 Essence Music Festival. It will be her first time at the Fest and her first full concert since 2008. Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, Alicia Keys, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Keri Hilson, Gladys Knight, Rapheal Saadiq, and tons of others are also part of this summer’s line up.

Surely this will be great pub for her new album she said would be releasing this year. And it may be the first stop on her tour she said would be accompanying her album release. 4th of July weekend will be on & poppin!
