My @Ford Experience Part 1: The Cars & The ESSENCE Fest #MyFordFam

My @Ford Experience Part 1: The Cars & The ESSENCE Fest #MyFordFam

Ford Motor Company hired me to share my Ford Fusion and Essence Festival experience.

I had an amazing time at the ESSENCE Music Festival this past weekend! I headed down to New Orleans on Thursday with Ford Automotive Company to celebrate the new 2017 Ford Focus and to enjoy the family reunion themed activation at the convention center.

The Activation

The theme this year was Family Reunion! Boy was the theme pulled off amazingly!! It was literally like seeing family and friends you hadn’t seen in awhile. It was fun for the whole family to enjoy and it was super smooth! You had to chance to check out cars, see celebrity interviews, dance to the DJ’s tunes and play some fun games! Let’s not forget, you get to check out the dope cars!



The Automobiles

This hot is it!??!

While the Mustang is super hot, my speed is more the Fusion or the Edge (which I currently have).


I test drove the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi last week (see post here). I fell in love with the car and all of it’s technology. DSC00252

Meet & Greets

Ford partnered with Sirius XM’s Heart & Soul which I listen to almost daily. They interviewed several celebrities on stage.

Every day, the line up was super lit of the artists and actors who were stopping by the Ford activation. I was most excited to see Charlie Wilson’s interview on stage and THEN I got a chance to meet him backstage. This definitely made my year as I am a HUGE Uncle Charlie fan 🙂

While I was behind the stage, New Edition was just arriving to go on stage as well


Another day, Tyrese came out and the ladies went CRAZY lol.


I got a chance to catch Sevyn Streeter’s interview on the stage as well


I had such a good time at the Ford activation this weekend in New Orleans. It was fun, entertaining and informative and I can’t wait to go back next year and see what they have in store for us!
