Tink Shows True Colors at Essence Fest After Overcoming Sound Issues

Tink Shows True Colors at Essence Fest After Overcoming Sound Issues

It was 7:13pm and I was basically running down New Orleans' Poydras Street toward the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Tink was set to hit Essence Fest's "Hip-Hop Superlounge" stage at 7:30pm. After recently falling in love with a handful of her songs, I wasn't going to miss seeing her in such an intimate setting.

Tink, née Trinity Home, took the stage just after 7:30 and the on-the-rise rapper-slash-singer's energy was on another level. The crowd could tell she was genuinely excited to be making her Essence Fest debut. We were excited, too!
