Recently Essence had their spring concert entitled Only Wanna Give It To You. Essence is Tufts’only all female a cappella group specializing in music of the African diaspora.
Essence, originally named Spice, was founded in 1990. In 1994, the group officially became Essence, but it was not until the fall of 1998 that they became an a cappella group.
Watch the video below from their spring concert for a taste of their great sound and check out their YouTube channel for more videos.
One of the most memorable orientation experiences for incoming first year Jumbos is the first a cappella show of the year: The O-Show, a free performance where Tufts’ favorite a cappella groups welcome the newcomers to our community. One of these favorites is Essence, an all-female a cappella gr0up focused on music of the African Diaspora and African-American Tradition.
Enjoy their O-Show performance of “Good Girl” by Chrisette Michele, featuring soloist Erica Satin-Hernandez, A13:
This past weekend, Jumbos invited their parents back to the Hill for a look at things they might have missed in previous visits. Tours, lectures, and performances showcased all the great things students are involved with everyday. Check out videos from some of the performances that highlighted the weekend.
