About Melba Moore

Singer/actor Melba Moore has crossed mediums, genres, and generations. Active since the mid-'60s, she broke through with a history-making Broadway role in Hair, won a Tony for Purlie, and was a Grammy nominee all before she truly hit her stride as a recording artist. Although Moore scored a couple Top 20 R&B hits in 1976, it was in the next decade that the four-octave vocalist truly excelled. She teamed up with Kashif and in turn became one of the key voices in post-disco R&B, exemplified by hits including "Love's Comin' at Ya" (1982) and the chart-topping "Love the One I'm With (A Lot of Love)" (1986). Since Moore shifted her focus back to stage and screen, she has still made time to record gospel and secular R&B.
