She has commanded stages around the world and who has conquered Broadway in memorable roles in Hair (1967), becoming the first black woman to replace a white woman in a lead role on Broadway when she replaced Diane Keaton, Purlie (1970) becoming the first black actress to win a Tony Award for best supporting actress in a musical, and becoming the first Black actress to play the role of Fantine in Les Miserables (1995).

Melba is back with "So In Love", the first release from Imagine, her latest offering to the musical landscape, which spent 3 weeks atop The UK Soul Top 30 Chart in November 2021 and returned Moore to airwaves in the United States and around the globe. 

Moore’s version of the anthem is registered in the United States Library of Congress as the official Black National Anthem and is also preserved by the Library of Congress as an aural treasure.
