Essence Fest Closes With Janet Jackson

Tens of thousands of visitors will be departing the Big Easy today after the conclusion of this year's Essence Fest last night that ended on a very high note with a concert from singing icon Janet Jackson at the Superdome. 

Other big names took part in what's become known as the "party with a purpose" that Mayor LaToya Cantrell says likely had a $250 million impact on the city during its four-day run.
