    Independent Everything: LIVE with Platinum R&B Recording Artist ~ Rome

    in Music

    Smooth R&B performer Jerome Woods, born in Benton Harbor, Michigan,
    is better known by his stage name Rome. He sang along with his mother’s soul
    records (Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke) as well as in the local church choir. He
    joined an R&B cover band named Fire & Ice while still in high school and quickly
    began traveling the region performing in local clubs and talent contests as a solo
    act and with the band.



    Rome left Oakwood University in 1989 to pursue his dream of becoming
    an R&B singer on the West Coast. He quickly began touring as a back-up
    vocalist with R&B singer/songwriters Patti LaBelle and Vesta known for hits
    "Once Bitten, Twice Shy", "Sweet Sweet Love", "Special," and her 1989 hit and
    signature song, "Congratulations,” in addition to performing in industry
    showcases.



    Finally, in 1996 Rome was connected with record producers Gerald
    Balilergeau and Victor Meritt who sent his demo tape to RCA Records. The label
    signed him immediately and he began working on his debut album, self-titled
    ROME, which was released in April 1997. The album soon ascended to #30 on
    the Album charts, mainly on the strength of the single, "I Belong to You 
    (Everytime I See Your Face)," which peaked at #6 in the United States. Rome
    had two Top 40 hits from the album, and it was certified platinum.


    In 2001 he returned with two albums: To The Highest and To Infinity
    (Thank You); the last one is just an alternative edition of Rome2000: Thank
    You. Do It followed in 2003, and three years later Sony issued The Best of
    Rome.


    Rome has just released his new single, “Close to You” on iTunes!

    MELBA MOORE - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW -WED, JAN 21, 2015 - 4:00 pm PST

    in Radio

    Beatrice Melba Hill[1] (born October 29, 1945), best known by her stage name, Melba Moore is an American singer, actress, entertainer. She is the daughter of saxophonist Teddy Hill and R&B singer Bonnie Davis.


    Melba Moore was born in 1945 in New York City, New York, to Gertrude Melba Smith (known professionally as Bonnie Davis) and Teddy Hill, and raised in Harlem, New York, until she was 9 and her divorced mother remarried jazz pianist Clement Leroy Moorman. She attended Newark Arts High School in Newark, New Jersey.Her mother, Bonnie Davis, had a No. 1 R&B hit with "Don't Stop Now", prior to Melba's birth. Although her biological father was Big Band leader and saxophonist Teddy Hill, it was her stepfather Moorman (who played on "Don't Stop Now") who became a prime influence and encouragement in Moore's musical pursuits, insisting that she learn to play the piano. When she graduated from college she worked as a music teacher, but she soon decided to pursue the spotlight. She chose her stage name by shortening her stepfather's surname from Moorman and using her middle name, "Melba".


    Moore began her performing career in 1967 as Dionne in the original cast of the musical Hair along with Ronnie Dyson and Diane Keaton. Moore replaced Keaton in the role of Sheila. In 1970, she won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Lutiebelle in Purlie. She would not return to Broadway until 1978 when she appeared (as Marsinah) with Eartha Kitt in Timbuktu! but left the show after a few weeks and was replaced by Vanessa Shaw. Following the success of Purlie, Moore landed two big-screen film roles, released two successful albums, 1970's I Got Love and Look What You're Doing to the Man, and co-starred with actor Clifton Davis in the then-couple's own successful variety television series in 1972.
