    (October 29, 2021) There aren't many artists who have had a fuller career on stage, screen and record than the legendary Melba Moore. And as she celebrates her 76th birthday, the incredible Melba is showing no signs of slowing down.

    As a birthday treat for her fans, Melba Moore has a brand new single that recalls the adult soul vibe of her classic 80s albums on Capitol Records. "So In Love" again teams Moore with longtime friend and collaborator Rahni Song as well as songwriter Chantel Hampton (Charlie Wilson, Lalah Hathaway), and it is a gem. Moore's performance is masterful, as she wraps her gentle soprano around the sensuous midtempo number. To say she is in "good voice" is an understatement.

    "So In Love" is the first single from the forthcoming album Imagine, and it makes us look forward to hearing the whole album. Check it out below and welcome the great Melba Moore back to SoulTracks.
