Moore is known for her 2006 breakthrough solo smash “Pressure Into Praise” as well as her cameo appearances on Hezekiah Walker’s evergreen “When We Get Over There,” the vamp of Tramaine Hawkins’s electrifying “Lift Me Up,” and the GMWA Women of Worship Choir’s classic “I Surrender My All.” The one solace for Moore was music. She was only four years old when her mother brought home Walter Hawkins’ Love Alive LP that featured his then-wife Tramaine on cuts such as “Goin’ Up Yonder” and “Changed.” Moore recalls, “I played that album every day before school. After school, I ran home and played that album. I told my mother that one day I’m going to sing like this lady and I’m going to sing with her one day.” Before that opportunity transpired, Moore joined Willie Small & the Willie Small Singers when she was fourteen.
Moore had been recruited by Hezekiah Walker as a teenager but her mother wouldn’t allow her to travel with his choir but in 1993, she had joined his Love Fellowship Choir. After years of traveling and ministering with groups, Moore felt like it was time to build her solo career and Telisa Stinson, a gospel music industry veteran, helped Moore lock down a recording deal with Tyscot Records in 2005.
Moore and her three sons now live in Greensboro, NC where she attends New Jerusalem Cathedral. Moore is working to spread the message of hope through music and service to others who have been abused and emotionally scarred. She has linked up with a North Carolina women’s organization called Impact that works to help abused women get back on their feet. Moore’s message of hope is one she hopes to share with the world – that only God can heal the pain and prepare one – to be Blessed, Broken & Given.
