The 2014 Essence Music Festival has come to an end.

It was so well received, Roland Martin broke the news writer/director,  Malcolm Lee plans to make it the focal point of the next “Best Man” sequel.

The looming question now is, should the festival end early on Sunday night?

I say yes!

Last night, Lionel Richie played to many empty seats as the mass exodus started around midnight.

Essence Fest is a lot of fun but very exhausting.  Only a few performers have what it takes to keep people seated after two nights of hard partying so why not start early and end early on Sunday night only?

Seven to Eleven sounds good to me.

What are your thoughts?
