Every year, for the 4th of July, New Orleans is turned upside down for the Annual Essence Music Festival. This year is no different! Beyonce is in town, and she was spotted at the “17 Wards” Wine & Grind party. Baby sister, Solange, was the DJ, and friends Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliott were in the house. If you were in town, this was definitely the party to be at. Check out photos in the gallery by clicking here.
