*The annual ESSENCE Music Festival is just around the corner and guess whose going to be there? New Edition!

Yep, Bobby Brown, Jonny Gill, Ralph Tresvant, Michael Bivins, Ricky Bell and Ronnie DeVoe will be on stage together singing their classics to the world to celebrate their 30th anniversary. This will be the first time the group has performed together (with all the members) since 1996.

“This is just the beginning,” said Bell. “We’re preparing for a world tour and many other exciting things that we’ll be announcing soon. The next chapter of New Edition is going to be an incredible celebration to thank our fans for all of their support over the last 30 years.”
