Miami Gardens, FL played hosted to the Jazz In The Gardens featuring performances from Run DMC, Erykah Badu and “Empire” stars Bryshere Gray and Jussie Smollett. See pics inside and check out Adrian Peterson’s Arabic-themed Birthday bash…

This weekend, Erykah Badu headlined the Jazz in The Gardens Music Fest at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, FL.

Erykah took the crowd through her large array of hits including Tyrone,” “Bag Lady,” “Love of My Life,” and “Next Lifetime,” among others.

Officials said this year’s festival was the most successful it’s hosted yet, with more than 70,000 music lovers attending.

RUN DMC were among the acts, walking the crowd through songs like “It’s Tricky” and “My Adidas.”

Angela Simmons was spotted at the event where she served as her Dad’s biggest cheerleader.

When she wasn’t screaming his name, she was checking her social media accounts.

Rickey Smiley helped MC and host the event.

He brought out “Empire” stars Bryshere Gray and Jussie Smollett.

Of course the crowd went crazy singing “Drip Drop.”

And speaking of Jussie, he covers the latest issue of Urban Lux Magazine.

He posed with Trayvon Martin’s mom Sybrina Fulton.

In party news….

Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson, who was benched after he was indicted on child endangerment charges, celebrated his 30th birthday with an extravagant Arabic-themed party in Texas.

And he rode in on a camel!

Adrian’s return to the NFL (and who he’ll play for) is still up in the air. But he still has three years remaining on his Vikings contract and is owed $12.75 million next season. But obviously, relations with the team aren’t good.

He has however, maintained great relations with Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx who made a special appearance at the party and posed with a few of Adrian’s pals.
