b. 1946, Jacksonville, Florida. This powerful soul singer moved to Philadelphia in the late '60s and, with help, from top local R&B disc jockey Jimmy Bishop, had two releases on Shout and one on Wand. When success was not forthcoming she returned to Jacksonville and, partly thanks to her cousin, noted producer Dave Crawford, joined Atlantic in 1970. Crawford produced and co-wrote Precious, Precious, which after laying dormant for some months on a b-side, sold a million and became her only US Top 40 pop hit in 1970. After six Top 40 R&B hits she joined Kayvette Records in 1975 when she achieved her biggest R&B success Make Me Feel Like A Woman, which was produced by Brad Shapiro. Moore moved to Columbia in 1978 and continued to sell records in the USA soul market. She also had her only UK hit with This Time Baby, which narrowly missed the Top 40 in 1979. A
consistent R&B hitmaker for over a decade, she increased her tally of US R&B chart entries to 15 in 1983 when she recorded on Catawba with the down-tempo single "Holding Back" which grazed the R&B charts. A series of releases, domestic and imports, followed. 1985's "Love's The Answer," on Sunnyview Records 1988's "This Old Heart Of Mine," 1991's "Only You," a 1992 dance mix of "Precious," and 1994's "Love's On It's Way." Since then Moore has been
relatively inactive on vinyl. Still a native of Florida Jackie can be found on the occasional disco-revival show and tours Europe frequently.
