Hello and welcome once again to The Moore Chante Show; the month-ending episode for September.
Chante began the show as she always does – with honesty and sincerity. Minus the details, she shared that she was coming off of a “doozy of a week”, but she also made it clear that if you don’t go through anything, you can’t turn into anything… …especially if you consider yourself a Christian.
But those troubles didn’t and don’t matter because “Chante’s Got A PLAN!” No matter what happens… …God is in control.
She countered the challenging circumstances (which included Instagram connectivity issues) with a joyfully- and spiritually-charged prayer!
Then she hit the ground running…
Today’s Shirt “I Am Essential” (in reverse, as she jokingly reminds) is brought to you/us by ProBlackOnline.com.
She had to revisit the fact that her page has been hacked; reminding us that she is not responsible for the posts, particularly the ones originating from overseas (Kosovo). She asks us all to come together and report the violators to Facebook so we can get them off of there (her page) and get back down to our beautiful business.
You hear that hackers? We’re watching you and we’ve got her back!
Sunday was also her daughter Sophia’s birthday, celebrating her 24th! Chante confessed that having Sophia saved her life, teaching her how to give, how to be present in her daughter’s life, putting her first.
And then, there was that fabulous in-home concert…
- “Free” by Chante Moore (I love the joy in her face; how she smiles when she sings. You know she loves what she does, which is why she does it so unquestionably well.)
- “It’s Alright” (acapella) by Chante Moore (It doesn’t matter how often she sings this masterpiece, it will never grow old, thus, neither will she.)
- “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green (She laced it with the smoothest flow. I swear, her voice is healing. Yeah, healing. The combination of her elation and the emerald green hue that filled the screen with that iridescent glow…)
- “Give Me Time” by Minnie Riperton (Dedicated to any and everyone going through the heartache of loss of a loved one. In God’s mercy, He never leaves us. I mentioned it in the live chat and will proudly say it here – Chante Moore is the ONLY person who can take a Minnie Riperton song as delicate as “Give Me Time” and turn it into a straight flower…)
- “Hand In My Pocket” by Alanis Morissette (she presented this tune with a playfully funky attitude that gave this rendition a snazzy fierceness. Another victory in tribute.
- “Moving Forward” by Israel Houghton (Once again, another song of praise delivered with energetic conviction and without fear. You could easily feel the tearful gratitude in her every exhalation of sound – in every syllable.)
- “Amazing Graze” (acapella) by John Newton (For those of us walking through this time; walking, one day at a time. Be blessed. If you didn’t catch that key change, you definitely felt it in the new energy she displayed a third of the way into the song. She reminded us that Amazing Grace is the fact that we can live forever…)
- “This Will Be” by Natalie Cole (I know many of you younger fans associate this song with the E-Harmony commercial, but when I listen to it, I think of the happiness produced in the original version. Thankfully Chante effortlessly continues that feeling and tradition. I love how she counted out just HOW it will be an everlasting love on her fingers, emphasizing each point. Everybody ain’t able, but SHE is.)
- “Do It Again” by The Judah Band (Clearly the finale was the showstopper. She proved this the moment she jumped out of the chair and into our living rooms. How she caught her breath to speak after that, Lord only knows.)
She shared the wonderful thought that all of your singing is for naught if it doesn’t touch God’s heart. She had to learn how to press through, no matter what, referencing the story about John The Baptist and how his efforts were worth it all. Everything we do will be worth it in the end.
She said, “Please keep moving forward. God is making all things new.” The germination process can’t happen without the death part. We may not like it, but we can make it. We can. “Bed of thorns…”
2020 is about clear vision. A clear vision of yourself. Chante is realizing how strong she is and that wisdom most often comes with pain. But she presses on.
She later reminded people to sign up for her Patreon and that she will be performing her first live show since March at the Chattanooga (Tennessee) Convention Trade Center on October 24. More ticket purchase information coming soon. The following weekend she’ll be performing live at a Drive-In concert. Gates open at 5, concert starts at 6 at the Hoover Complex in Hoover, AL.
Chante’s Inscription Of Inspiration for the Week:
(NIV) 27 “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”
(KJV) 27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.
Chante paraphrased: A woman (whose daughter was demon-possessed and suffering) approached Jesus and said, ‘Lord, I want whatever You have’ to which He replied at the behest of his disciples, urging Him to reject her, ‘You’re not even worthy of being here, lady.’ She answered that she was only there to get what she needed from Him for the sake of her daughter. After He rebuked and told her to go away she pleaded, ‘even the dog gets the crumbs that fall from their masters’ laps. Can I at least get something to heal my daughter? Just give me a little bit of who You are…’
And it was that show of faith that led to His granting her wish, healing her daughter instantly.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forevermore.
Chante expressed her desire to see the miracles happen; to be the one that He used to touch people, lay hands of healing and recovery on the sick; to make positive changes in people lives.
“…I want them to be healed while I’m singing. Even… …while I’m singing.”
She expressed, “If there’s something you’re hanging onto in your life, remember, time is not really the point. if you find the best thing ever and it comes at a time unexpected – then it’s still the best thing ever…”
I’d say that’s a good point to absorb and take with you. And although she didn’t deem it so, I’m pretty sure we can call that Chante’s Lesson For The Week!
Before I forget: Those of you posting your CashApp IDs in the live comments, please cease – be respectful and resist this temptation. This is not the platform for that. This is how we bless and show Chante love for her weekly, self-imposed commitment to giving us a free (I repeat, FREE) one-hour show that we would otherwise be driving to and paying for – in the comfort of our own homes, I might add.
If you’d like to send Chante a monetary gift of love, you can do so on CashApp at $TMCshow.
If you’d like an opportunity to speak with her via Meet & Greet, receive a ChanteGram, etc, you can do so by ordering here.
