The Legendary Frankie Beverly Graces the Cover of ESSENCE Magazine July/August 2024


As ESSENCE gears up for the 30th celebration of the ESSENCE Festival of Culture™ presented by Coca-Cola®, to commemorate this milestone, the magazine is announcing *today* a cover featuring the legendary Frankie Beverly.

Beverly will grace the stage at the Festival of Culture one last time with a star-studded tribute performance of his greatest hits and a passing-the-torch moment to the next generation on Sunday, July 7th in New Orleans.

During the inception of the ESSENCE Festival of Culture™ presented by Coca-Cola®, Frankie Beverly and Maze began a longstanding tradition of closing out the event with a Sunday night performance and all-white party.

Since the anthem, “Before I Let Go”, made its musical debut on the legendary R&B group, Frankie Beverly and Maze’s “Live In New Orleans” album, it has been a thread in the cultural fabric of the Black community and the iconic festival.

As the 77-year R&B legend exits from live performances, he offers reflections on how his music has transcended generations in the latest magazine issue.
