Chante Moore

A versatile singer, Chante Moore sings both R&B and jazz with a five-octave vocal range. Born in San Francisco, she was the daughter of a minister so she heard a lot of gospel music while growing up and sang in church. However, Moore also had albums by George Duke and Lee Ritenour, and sometimes wrote her own lyrics to their songs. As a teenager, she decided that she wanted to become a singer after seeing a high school version of The Wiz. Moore worked as a model before signing with MCA when she was 22. She recorded the CDs Precious, Love Supreme, This Moment is Mine and Exposed, having hit records with “Love’s Taken Over,” “It’s Alright,” “I’m What You Need,” “Old School Lovin’,” “Free,” “Chante’s Got a Man” and “Contagious.”

She also appeared on several soundtracks, including singing “Your Home Is In My Heart” for How Stella Got Her Groove Back and “Wey U” for Waiting To Exhale. In addition, she appeared on the UPN television show Girlfriends (singing Minnie Riperton’s “Lovin’ You”) and sang on Kenny G’s single “One More Time.” Since marrying R&B vocalist Kenny Lattimore, Moore has often appeared onstage with her husband and they recorded a pair of duet albums: Things That Lovers Do and Uncovered/Covered. Recently Moore starred in the play By Any Means Necessary and signed with Peak Records.
