The marvelous Miss Melba Moore recently visited So Booking Cool to discuss her thoughts on her accomplishments and honors (next year she will receive her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and next month, she will be awarded with not one but two, presidential honors); whether or not music is vibrational; if she still trains as a vocalist decades later; her thoughts on the current state of R&B; challenges she’s had to overcome in her career, and much more!
Moore, who was born in New York City, is a Tony award-winning and Grammy nominated songstress and actress who has been active in show business since the 60’s. Earlier this year, she released her new riveting album Imagine, which was executive-produced by her daughter Charli Huggins. Next month, the White House is honoring her philanthropy with the Presidential Volunteer Service Award for her work in urban communities.
“You ask me what [accomplishment] means the most to me,” the This is It singer says, “I think kind of culminating and seeing that people have been paying attention to your life even when you weren’t; and it made a difference, and it made something good happen in their life that they can pay attention to and that they remember. I don’t know if I can pick one out.”
