The Iridium Jazz Club is pleased to present Tony Award-winner and versatile singer/actress Melba Moore.
Ms. Moore, whose career spans four decades will perform a compilation of music from her illustrious career which will feature pop hits This Is It," Love's Comin' At'cha" and You Stepped Into My Life"; selections from her Broadway shows Hair (Ms. Moore originated the role of Dionne, replacing Dianne Keaton and becoming the first black actress to replace a white actress is a lead role on Broadway), Purlie (for which she won the Tony Award for Best Supporting Actress In A Musical) and I Got Love; Ms Moore will also perform a selection of jazz standards that will feature the pianist/arranger Nat Adderley, Jr. (who is the nephew of the great Cannonball Adderley and the son of trumpeter Nat Adderley).
In addition to her considerable acting and singing talents, Ms. Moore is deeply spiritual, seeking daily wisdom from the Bible. She is an ardent advocate for the rights of children resulting in her Melba Moore Foundation for Abused and Neglected Children. This multifaceted artist/philanthropist is always reaching deeper, pressing harder, ever challenging herself; keeping her audience on the edge of their seats, knowing that whatever happens next will be at least, as exciting as what happened before.
