While I did some chores around the house this morning, I played albums (albums, not CDs) by Ella, Sarah, Lena, Nina, and you - "A Portrait of Melba." I have to tell you, as I listened to you sing "You Are My River" and all the other songs, I kept asking myself, "Where does that remarkable voice come from? How can anyone sing so well? Where is Melba Moore right now? I would love to attend an "Evening with Melba" performance in NYC this summer."
Therefore, I turned on my computer and Googled "Melba Moore," which brought up this site. Thank God you are still singing and, honey child, you look gorgeous. You look ageless and glowingly healthy.
Today, I will renew my support of your artistry by purchasing your latest album. Today, I will tell someone, friend or stranger, that Ms. Melba Moore is still kicking butt vocally. Today, I will think of you off-and-on, all day.

Ms. Moore, I'm probably one of your newest fans. Let me begin by saying what an AMAZING talent you are. I'm currently listening to your "older" stuff (Free, Lean on me, Playboy Scout) and I'm in a state of "WOW." It's hard to title these tracks as "older" since their sound and your voice are timeless. While listening to your music...I had to find out more about you, so I googled your name and was excited to read about your MANY accomplishments. This is truly something to be proud of. Your talent has transcended and transformed many.
Have you thought of coming to San Francisco? The Empire Plush Room at the York Hotel has a great cabaret space for you, possibly your one woman show.

I just wanted to let you know that I really needed that spiritual presence you brought with you when you visited our church, FABC down in New Orleans on December 6, 2004. That particular day I had a lot on my mind and your unexpected presence was such a treat. Thank you for that and may the Lord keep on blessing you and me. Kana
