NEW ORLEANS - Essence Fest brings some of the best and brightest performers to town, and this year is no different.
Disney singing sensation Coco Jones is set to take the stage this weekend, but before she does, she joined us on the Eyewitness Morning News.
Jones will be performing in the first ever Essence Music Festival Youth Empowerment Concert on the New and Next Stage at the Superdome at 7:40 p.m. on Thursday. Visit http://www.essence.com/festivals/2012/essence-music-festival/schedule/ to learn more.
We got a preview in the studio of Jones' performance.
