As part of Scott Nevins' Curtain Call series at the popular dance club, Moore will perform a full set following the weekly "Musical Mondays" video presentations of Broadway performances. Moore's concert is scheduled for 11 PM. This special Labor Day edition of Curtain Call will help celebrate Moore's new DVD/CD, "Live from Lincoln Center with special guest Freddie Jackson." Moore is expected to perform several of her Broadway favorites at Splash.

A singer with a multi-octave range, Moore began her career as a back-up singer for the likes of Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick and Liza Minnelli. Her work in the original company of Hair led to her Tony-winning role in Purlie, and since then Moore has performed in concert arenas throughout the world. Her R&B hits include "I Am His Lady," "Falling" and "Read My Lips," which was nominated for a Grammy Award. Moore was also seen in the Paramount film "The Fighting Temptations."

Splash Bar is located in Manhattan at 50 West 17th Street. Admission is free until 10 PM; there is a $5 charge after that time. Attendees must be 21 or older with identification.
