The Moore Chante Show – Ep. 10/25/2020 Recap

It’s time for the latest and greatest in the home adventures of our favorite girl, The Voice, Lady Chante Moore! Who’s ready to recap The Moore Chante Show from this past ChantDay?

I can’t count that many hands at once. Let me try it THIS way. Who ISN’T ready to talk about it?

Nobody? Good. Here we go…

Anyone who fashions his or herself a devout CM fan undoubtedly knows that she is formally performing again, albeit just two shows (for now). And if you DIDN’T know, if you were on social media, you couldn’t miss all of the live posts of her “A Night In Black” show in Chattanooga, last Saturday. I tell you what – from what I saw, I was as jealous as I was excited. It’s clear that in her time away, she hadn’t missed a step, but you already know that by tuning in every week. To hear her describe what it was like, returning to live stage, it was “strange, but pretty cool.” I tell you ONE thing. I’m seriously considering hijacking an Uber with a water pistol (mask is a no-brainer) and forcing them to drive me to Hoover, Alabama for the Drive-In show. And in case you forgot:

Upcoming Concert Dates:
Oct. 31 – Drive-In – “A Perfect Note Concert Series” Hoover Met Complex (Hoover, AL) – 6:30 p.m. (Gate opens at 5)

And to anyone considering jumping up on stage (like the [censored] who did so during the concert, putting her health and safety at risk during this pandemic), please, show some class and respect. This is our girl, the Celestial Siren. In fact, I’m considering working security at the next event. I’ll be the big man standing next to her with the belt in my hand, waiting to get ‘old school’ on the next one to try it.

I’d also like to extend my appreciation to Chante for going forward with her show. There were questions as to whether she’d be rested up enough. And there she goes, despite fatigue, being the consummate performer again, finding the energy to come through for us. I think we should all take a moment to reflect on the fact that she hasn’t missed a single week since her show debuted on Easter Sunday. That takes dedication. That takes perseverance. That takes love.

She thanks you all again for the Chantegram requests. She enjoys doing them and feels it’s very kind of you to want that in addition to sending the CashApp blessings and the neverending love.

Update: The hackers appear to be off of her page! Finally! Thank GOD!

She shared a story from touring with the legendary, late Phyllis Hyman. In this memory, Phyllis tripped over a monitor on stage, which shocked and frightened the audience. After the OMGs, people asked if she was ok. Phyllis, laying on her side, calmly said, “Yeeeeep. I’m good!” and sang right from her spot on the floor!

Now that’s cool…

Chante wondered if a module like social media, providing for more intimate celebrity-fan interaction, would have made a difference in Phyllis’ life, maybe and ultimately helping to prevent her from taking her own life due largely to depression. I miss you, Phyllis, as do all of your fans. I wish we COULD have done more for you. Rest In Peace.

Chante did take a moment to note that it’s interesting how these guys (Facebook) let people steal her page for a YEAR (stealing her money and her opportunities to earn an honest living), but cut her off from her OWN songs during her live show.

(Just Sayin’)

Another song is coming called “Home”! Look for it and be ready!


Chante’s ChanTunes

  • “My Tribute” by Andrae Crouch (She had me in “church” mode, thinking about that random churchgoer who stands up, takes a moment to testify and ends up breaking into song. I immediately sat back, folded my arms, closed my eyes and began nodding my head in agreement, then shaking it in disbelief, support and approval.)
  • “Mood” by Chante Moore (Her first collaboration with The Time members and monster production team, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis from the “Beverly Hills Cop 3” soundtrack.)
  • “Though Shalt Not” by Chante Moore (Written by Sheila E!!! One of her greatest songs, in my opinion. Once again, her self-harmony was balanced, resonant and soul-shaking. There’s nothing better than perfection performing with perfection.)
  • “Sexy Thang” by Chante Moore (Another of my favorites and second only to “It’s Alright” when her first album debuted. Believe me when I tell you that I listened to this song end-less-LY! Listening to her sing all of her background vocals with “Youuuu’ve got that sexxy thannnng gooooin’…”, sung in the rounds, dude. Drove me insane. Her earlier work reminds me of a time when I believed that Chante alone could save the dwindling value of the music industry as a whole. And Oh My GOODness how she sounds when she adds live harmony to her recordings. Uh-oh, I’m flying away again…)
  • “Candlelight & You” by Chante Moore and Keith Washington (Her first performance on Soul Train. Also the love theme from “House Party 2”. Another incredible ballad.)
  • “Easy” by Chante Moore (Ok, I have to share this funny story about this song which I forgot to include in my humiliating true story, Meeting Chante Moore (Pt 1): Things Idiots (Meaning Me) Do: The very moment that I first heard the intro to this song I immediately thought, “This intro excerpt is DEFINITELY my new alarm clock song!” That fateful morning when my wife finally heard the alarm go off with Chante’s voice softly filling the room saying, “Good morning, baby. Good morning, baby. How did you rest last night? Did you rest well? I love waking up to you. I love waking up to you. What would you like for breakfast? I think YOU’RE what I’d like to do today…”
    I went to the bathroom only to return to her laying on her side, elbow on pillow, head on palm. Before I could ask about the stare, she proclaimed flatly, “Since Chante’s making your breakfast, I’m going to stay here. Be sure to bring me some…”
    I ended up making breakfast for about 2 weeks straight.
  • “Blooming Flower” by Chante Moore (Is about Chante waiting for the appropriate time [her flower to bloom] to enter a true relationship with actor Kadeem Hardison [famously known for his role as Dwayne Wayne on television’s “A Different World”]. Now THAT is some trivia I didn’t see coming.
  • “Santa Don’t Sleigh” by Chante Moore (It ain’t Christmas season just yet, but this was strategically selected to put us in a festive mood and “party our way out” as she put it. We love you, woman.)

Chante’s Inscription Of Inspiration for the Week:
(Going forward, for sake of space and time, I will only post one interpretation. If you have a different version, you’re free to look it up in your own respective bible.)

Isaiah 58:11

(KJB) And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

God gave her this scripture back in 2018, which she keeps by her bed and reads daily because the Lord promised her He would take care of her. She feels blessed to be “a watered garden…”

Final thoughts: As Chante closed in her story about Phyllis Hyman’s stage incident, “If I ever trip over anything on stage, rest, trust and believe, I’ma be just fine…”


…so no matter who you are, remember, you’re gonna suffer. But never forget. God’s got you and ‘It’s Alright’. Everything’s alright… Chante’s Lesson For The Week

Until next time, when Sunday is ChantDay!

  2. Wow, the time has flown by… can’t believe since Easter Sunday Chanté has been doing this and never missed a beat. Thank you for your dedication Chanté. We appreciate it so so very much! But, let me tell you how my mom and I laughed our heads off at your story about using “Easy” as your alarm… 😂😂😂 Another recap well done. Have a great you two!

  3. Yes! I’m amazed that next week will be my 10 episode, covering her. If she were to take a week off, she’s totally deserving of it.

    Tell your mom this is no different than it would have been if it was HER bedroom. LOL

    Thank you the kind words and for reading, as always!

  4. As always, I enjoyed your recap! One thing I’ve learned about our girl is that she has a great work ethic! For her to show up every week for all these months is extraordinary. She comes prepared every week and is always looking flawless! It’s definitely a great way to start my week each Sunday. I’m looking forward to seeing her at City Winery on 11/14!!!!

  5. Great recap, Zoot. I did attend her Chattanooga show and it was amazing. Was good to see her out on stage and interacting with the people (even the older guy swinging his handkerchief) and dancing with the suave cat to “Wey U.”
    Thanks again for giving your all, Té. Glad you were able to get some rest and will be ready for Hoover. Peace and blessings….£
