Hello and welcome back to the 2nd Episode Recap of The Moore Chante Show, the Labor Day Weekend edition! For all my returning readers, I’m glad to see you and for you first timers, come on in! There’s always room for more on “ChantDay”. I’d also like to thank those of you who extended your kind comments of praise of the first blog recap and your encouraging words. I kindly ask that you leave any and all future comments in the “Comments” section at the bottom of this post for the benefit of other readers and The Voice, herself, Lady Chante Moore (she WILL see it)!
Also, for you new readers, this recap is brought to you by “Kenny’s Camera, Cooking & Crazy Confessions”, the host page for the CM recap. If you signed up (and I hope you will), you will be seeing many other blog posts in your email, of which, this page is named: Photography, Recipes, Funny Flashback Stories, African American Studies & Commentaries, Movie Reviews, Top Ten Lists, Music and so forth and so on. But trust me, I promise it will never be boring (just ask Chante’. Why do you think she asked me to host this?).
So what’s happened between last week and this one? Well, Chante appeared on The Terrell Show on YouTube (if I get time I’ll try to kick out a recap, but I had a family photo shoot and a wedding shoot over the weekend so I’m kinda locked down in the editing process). If you missed it, you can catch it here.
What did we get this week from our Soulful Siren of Serenity? As always, plenty of magnificent songs performed in a new studio-esque video setting (and you know she kicked it off with the power):
- “It’s Alright” by Chante Moore [We were watching her show on television, outdoors, and when she started ad-libbing in whistle register, the neighboring dogs literally stopped in their tracks and ran to the fence between properties to watch. So yes, the Sheep Dogs, Schillerstovares, Schnauzers, Shar Peis, Shetlands and Shih Tzus love Chante!
- “You Bring Me Joy” by Anita Baker [She prefaced this tune by saying that although this song can be interpreted in so many different ways, we need to know what brings us joy. It brought me a LOT of joy because I used to serenade girls with this tune on soprano sax back at Florida A&M, so yeah Chante, I feel ya! Ahhh, the memories.]
- “More Of You” by Fred Hammond [She fast-forwarded the song to what she felt was the most impactful passage for all to hear and digest (her harmony with the melody is so delightful).]
- “Changed” by Jorden Feliz [It reminds her of a time when she was fighting through depression, sadness and heaviness (of heart). When she got to the other side, she could feel THE CHANGE. This, to her, was the ‘soundtrack’ to that time period.]
- “Through It All” by Andrae Crouch (acapella) [Message: We have to stand the tests of time. It’s OK to question. Sometimes there are answers, sometimes there aren’t any. Just take it, one day at a time…]
- “Chante’s Got A Man” by Chante Moore [Yes, she reads those requests and this is for YOU!]
- “Candlelight And You” by Chante Moore (ft. Keith Washington) (acapella) [If you aren’t familiar with that song, you can’t possibly have appreciated her covering Keith’s parts. Hilarious and loveable.]
She reminds you all that Chantebilia (Items from the Chante Moore collection) is available for purchase (information at the bottom), so hurry up and get yours to show the world that you rock with Chante!
Chante shared that in these times, “we have to encourage ourselves and speak life to ourselves and know and count on the fact that the Lord’s gonna take care of everything…” We have to make God REAL to ourselves, not a fantasy or pipe dream. She then took to the scriptures as she so faithfully and fervently does:
(NIV) “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
(KJV) “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus or Lord.”
She shared a memory of a time when she was on a prayer line where the pastor taught about how, when we turn off our GPS, we get lost because we’re not really paying attention. We have to incline our ears to the Lord’s voice because when we’re not paying attention, we can get a little lost. Just as much, she pays attention to the words of her fans in all of the text messages she receives.
She announced the coming of her Patreon which will allow for more interaction with everyone. She also made mention of the family that functions within who she affectionately calls, The Imoortals (note the spelling). Through this platform, she will get more intimately involved with everyone, so be on the lookout for the upcoming announcement!
She wants everyone to know that she truly appreciates all of the love and support and wants us all to know that things are tough and will get tougher, but as she said before, it will be alright. So be resilient and keep moving forward.
In addition, she has a new book on the horizon called, “My Quest For God’s Face”, in which she’s in the editing process, so be ready!
Don’t forget to send her a message indicating what it is you’d like her to talk about. Remember, she DOES read it (I’m living proof).
And if you doubt whether or not she sees you, remember when I mentioned her singing and the dogs stopping and listening? Well, we were having a cookout and I put the TV on TMCS as it was playing and posted it on FB/IG Live. Here is what she said (note, my TV recording was made later – she only saw a photograph of what you’re seeing). Click below. It’s only 30 seconds, don’t worry…
And unlike her earlier warning in the show that she was going to lose her wig, I actually did! Just ask Chante. She’s seen it before… (No photo available)
Well, that does it for this week’s edition. I hope you enjoyed it. Please keep in mind that, like a reader stated, you don’t have to come here when you can simply watch the show again. We all know that. This is for those who’d like a quick overview and reminder of what they enjoyed as well as for those who haven’t seen it and may not be able to carve out the time. She and I still want her message to be heard, her story to be told and her song to be absorbed so we can all be filled with that old school lovin’.
See you next week and remember, as I always say, #SundayIsChantDay!
