For the Festival's 19th installment, over 30 of music's most respected artists are set to take the stage, including Beyonce, Jill Scott, Maxwell, Keyshia Cole, New Edition, Brandy, LL Cool J, Mint Condition, Charlie Wilson and Bridget Kelly. Also, pastor Donnie McClurkin and Tramaine Hawkins will be honored with a not-to-be-missed, stellar Gospel tribute. (More unbelievable acts will be announced soon, so stay tuned! This year is going to be a blockbuster.)
