If your name is randomly selected, you’ll be headed to New Orleans.  This year’s Essence Festival features Beyonce, Maxwell, TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine & Tank), Jill Scott, LL Cool J, Brandy, Charlie Wilson and MANY more of R&B’s greatest artists.

Plus while you’re there pick up a McDonald’s “365 Black” tote bag while supplies last.
