Chante Moore Biography

Her music is at once sensuous, romantic and loving.  Passion, intimacy, and warmth are the ingredients she uses to create just the right vibe, the perfect mood for love.  Her own heartfelt compositions, jazzy grooves, and soulful ballads are her stock in trade.  When she performs, her music comes alive with vibrancy and energy.  Through four best-selling, critically-acclaimed solo albums and two duet sets with husband Kenny Lattimore â€" 2003's THINGS THAT LOVERS DO and the current UNCOVERED/COVERED, Chante Moore has emerged as consistently popular recording artist and performer whose music has an international appeal.

The Bay Area-born daughter of a minister, Chante's pathway to recognition as one of contemporary soul music's premier vocalists began during her teen years, singing gospel music and setting her own poetry to the instrumental recordings of such artists as George Duke and Lee Ritenour.  Inspired by the reaction she got in a high school production of "The Wiz," Chante (derived from the French word for singing) started pursuing her natural penchant for music.  The strikingly elegant Chante, a successful beauty pageant winner, Chante signed with Silas Records, an MCA-distributed label created by late renowned music executive Louil Silas Jr. in 1991 and began working diligently on her all-important debut album PRECIOUS, released in 1992.  

In January 2002, she married singer Kenny Lattimore in a quiet ceremony in Jamaica.  After their  marriage, Kenny and Chante were in the recording studio creating THINGS THAT LOVERS DO, a best-selling album that primarily featured covers of classic R&B songs such as Teddy Pendergrass' "Close The Door," The Commodores' "Still," "You Don't Have To Cry' (Rene & Angela, 1986),  'With You I'm Born Again,' (Billy Preston & Syreeta Wright, 1980), "Make It Last Forever" (Keith Sweat with Jacci McGhee, 1988), "You're All I Need To Get By" (Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, 1968), "Love Saw It" (Karyn White & Babyface, 1989) "Here We Go" (Minnie Riperton & Peabo Bryson, posthumously released in 1980) and the Ashford & Simpson chestnut, "Is It Still Good To Ya."  In addition to producers Darryl Simmons, James Poyser, Jamey Jazz and Jamie Hawkins, Kenny and Chante worked with super hitmakers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis on the album's title cut and first single, "Loveable (From Your Head To Your Toes)."  Another cut on the album, the country song, "When I Said I Do" (originally recorded by Clint Black & Lisa Hartman Black, 1999), was also performed by Chante and Kenny on one of the biggest and most anticipated wedding episodes on the longest running daytime drama, "Young and The Restless."

Currently planning her next solo set, Chante â€" whose international touring has included performances in Japan, France, The Netherlands, Germany and the UK â€" continues to build on the momentum she's  created with her impressive body of recorded work and her most recent duet albums with Kenny; undoubtedly with a career spanning close to fifteen years, she's proven her ability to stay the course as one of contemporary soul music's  leading ladies.
