They don’t call her one of the world’s best entertainers for nothing. Janet Jackson has been in the game for decades and continues to break barriers. This time, the superstar just had one of the highest grossest nights in Essence Fest history. During the 2022 Essence Festival of Culture held in New Orleans, the 56-year-old hit the stage with a presence that left the crowd shaking.

They brought to light the predatory nature of the music industry and protected their own against all interlopers. In so doing, the Jackson family became an unstoppable force. Despite the problems that Michael Jackson, especially, seemed to have with his father, he eventually forgave him and proclaimed an annual “Joseph Jackson Day” at Neverland Ranch. As Michael would later explain during an emotional speech at Carnegie Hall in 2001, his father was the product of the Great Depression and the Jim Crow era of the United States.
