The ESSENCE Festival – the largest event
celebrating African-American culture and music
that draws an estimated crowd of 500,000 for
four-day events (June 30-July 3) in New
Orleans has added GRAMMY nominated female
group Virtue(Ebony Holland, Karima Kibble, and Heather Martin) to their star-studded line-
up. The sister trio joins previously announced
contemporary gospel and R&B singers, Yolanda Adams, Travis Greene, Brian Courtney Wilson , Tasha Page Lockhart, Kierra Sheard, Faith Evans and Keke Wyatt for a performance on Sunday, July 3 on the
Essence Empowerment Experience stage held
at the Ernest N. Moral Convention Center
tributing the legendary, incomparable Clark Sisters.

Virtue will perform their current radio single “Miracle” which was originally made popular by
The Clark Sisters. “Miracle” has spent 6
consecutive weeks in the Top 30 on
Billboard’sGospel Airplay chart sitting at #25
this week.

Since the release of Virtue’s album their fellow recording artists, celebrity friends and
personalities have been touting their project as
a must get. Platinum-selling Kirk Franklin, Isaac Carree, Willie Moore, Jr., actress Yvette Nicole Brown have all tipped their hats to this project via their social media platforms
including GRAMMY winnerErica Campbell who recently posted on her @IAmEricaCampbell IG
page about the girls cover tune of the #1 Pop
song “More Than Words”. The song is lifted
from the group’s critically acclaimed seventh
studio project FEARLESS (#3 Billboard debut) which was released in February of this year and
has become a standout favorite among fans
and critics.

Additionally, the girls have upcoming
promotional appearances in the month of June
including the nationally syndicated The Rickey
