Music Choice of the Month 2/2018: Charles “Gator” Moore
Charles “Gator” Moore, an American R&B/Soul singer/songwriter, has a voice of gold with a vocal range that demands attention. Giving audiences a strong and intimate feeling of love from the heart, depicting the strengths and weaknesses of relationships through robust arrangements.
Gator is a former member of the R&B/Street-Soul trio The Transitions, introduced by entertainer/music executive Michael Bivins. The trio delivered a low-key, classic hustlers anthem LP, Back In Da Days, (Billboard Top 100), produced largely by Keir Gist aka Kay Gee (Naughty by Nature), which is still a must have in every hustler’s playlist across the nation.
Gator is also the voice behind the remake of the soulful Sam Cooke classic “A Change Is Gonna Come” from Tyler Perry’s “Daddy’s Little Girls” movie soundtrack, as well as the sexually explicit ballad Straight Loving on John Singleton’s “Baby Boy” movie soundtrack, written and performed by Gator.
Gator has since released his debut solo single “Miracle”, painting the picture of a perfect gentleman and reminding music lovers of the R&B sound what the industry has been missing. Find “Miracle” on iTunes here!
Gator’s musical roots are inspired by some of music’s great male vocalists, such as Bobby Womack, Teddy Pendergrass, David Ruffin and Sam Cooke, and being from the original music capital of the world [Detroit/Motown], Gator is considered to be one of the most soulful male vocalist to emerge from the city since Marvin Gaye.
