D’Angelo, the man who brought you hits like “Brown Sugar”, “Cruisin”, and the certified gold hit “Lady” is scheduled to make an appearance at the 2012 Essence Music Festival this summer in New Orleans.

After stepping away from the music scene some ten years ago and only making news for his run ins with the law, it will be interesting to see if he can still create the dreams with his signature sound.

Having been away for so long how do you think he will do based on the music that he put out a decade or so ago?

Oh, and by the way, he was in his mid 20’s when he was pumping out the hits!
