After earning praise in the gospel world for her 2006 duet CD Covered/Uncovered with her husband, Chante Moore demonstrates her breathtaking skills as a jazz vocalist on two standards on Love The Woman
: Nancy Wilson's classic "Guess Who I Saw Today," and one of Aretha Franklin
's early recordings, "Start of Something Big."
In addition to her flourishing recording career, Chante Moore has also proven herself as a talented actress on stage in "Things That Lovers Do" co-starring her husband, and last year she toured in "By Any Means Necessary" with Tisha Campbell-Martin and Dave Hollister
. She also enjoys serving as a role model, mentoring young girls at her church, and is currently writing a self-help book for women.
Chante Moore is especially gratified to resume her solo career and satisfy her fan's desire for the classy R&B stylings which propelled her to gold status on her three consecutive CDS. As one of today's few consistent hitmakers, she's combined her ability to entertain with her mission to inspire and uplift her loyal following. "That's really made the difference for me, the people who have made it through because they heard some music I did. They've said, 'You got me through college.' 'You got me through a breakup.' It's about taking the experiences that I've had and helping somebody else. I think to be valuable in the world you've gotta open up and be able to share who you are."
So now for the first time in eight years, Chante Moore is sharing her unique talents as a solo star with Love The Woman
, and her fans will fall in love with her all over again.
Chante Moore will perform her versatile repertoire as a featured artist on Norman Brown
's summer tour, which kicked off in April.
