Chanté Moore, the daughter of a minister, grew up on gospel music and albums by George Duke and Lee Ritenour, sometimes applying her lyrics to their music. Moore decided as a teenager that she wanted to become a singer after an inspirational performance in a high-school rendition of +The Wiz. In addition to her writing and singing talents, she was a successful beauty pageant contestant.
Before releasing her debut CD, Precious, Moore lent her talents to El DeBarge’s In the Storm; the track “You Know What I Like” showcases Moore’s vocals on the chorus. The follow-up to Precious, Love Supreme, featured the single “Old School Lovin’.” Four years after Love Supreme, Moore released her third album, This Moment Is Mine. Exposed followed in 2000, featuring production work from Jermaine Dupri and the team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Though she didn’t release any solo material for several years, she recorded a pair of albums — 2003’s Things That Lovers Do and 2006’s Uncovered/Covered — with her husband, Kenny Lattimore. She followed those releases in 2008 with Love the Woman, issued on the Peak label. Craig Lytle, Rovi.
The choice of Moore as the headlining artiste is predicated on the fact that between 2006 and 2010, she had to personally deal with chronic kidney failure with the attendant huge costs for dialysis. She had a successful transplantation in May 2010. It is the realisation of how close she was to death, while many less privileged persons across the world were not that lucky, that has made her commit herself to the service of humanity.
