Chanté Keeps Giving Me Moore

I'm sitting here with my fingers hovered over the keys trying to decide how to start this post. What do I say? How do I say it? I'm not kidding. I developed, and to this day still have, a major crush on Moore. Chanté Torrane Moore is a fine woman. She is a gorgeous woman. Thoughts of her make me giddy. She gets more beautiful and sexy with age. I am beside myself with how I feel about this woman. Believe me when I say it, when I fell for her I was convinced that it was impossible to fall any harder or deeper. I tell you now, I was wrong. In fact, I couldn't be more wrong. If you only knew how many times I would stay up to watch Midnight Love on BET. I would be tired like hell the next day but I couldn't miss it because Chanté more likely than not would be featured. Take note of the 'more likely than not' because sometimes she wouldn't be on but it was worth it for the times that she was. Have any of you seen the video for It's Alright? Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm. It's my favorite Chanté video. Ah man... Chanté... white spaghetti strap dress (I say dress but it looks very much like a nightgown and if it isn't, it doesn't matter because this is what I see when I look at or think of it). **sighs** Chanté Moore... **more sighs**. I've totally lost track of all I intended to say *even more sighs*. This is the effect that Moore has on me. I get all dreamy... lost in my thoughts... ooh the thoughts... Where was I? This is not an easy composition. I am seriously taking 3 - 5 minute pauses to recover. Moore has a daughter, Sophia, with ex-husband Kadeem Hardison *how he could let her get away is beyond me* and a son, Kenny, with singer husband Kenny Lattimore. Her music falls into the R&B and Jazz genres. She's a former model and beauty pageant contestant. In 1992, she released her first album, Precious. The debut album went gold. She followed up with A Love Supreme in 1994 and This Moment Is Mine in 1999, both these albums were also certified gold. My favorite Moore songs include I See You In A Different Light *this is my most favorite of all* with Jojo Hailey of K-Ci and Jojo from her This Moment Is Mine album. This song was featured in the move Love And Basketball and is a true ballad as far as ballads go. Another song that is a great contender for most favorite of all is the upbeat, mid-tempo, head-bopping, finger snapping and all round feel good tune, Straight Up off of her 2001 album, Exposed. Your Home Is In My Heart, done with Boys II Men for the How Stella Got Her Groove Back soundtrack is another song that gets played out by me, even still today. Other songs that come to mind are It's Alright (this is the song/video that captured my attention and brings back a surge of memories of falling head over heels for Moore - it holds a very special meaning for me), Old School Lovin', Love's Taken Over, Chanté's Got a Man and You Don't Have To Cry. Moore has sold over 5 million albums and singles throughout her career. Her 2003 album, Things That Lovers Do has been her highest ranking album on the Billboard Charts so far. I think I'll just sit here for a while and soak up all of the goodness, hotness, sultry sexiness, scrumptious, exquisite, smooth, sensuous and magnificent beauty that is Chanté Moore *sighs.......* just look at that rear......mmm mmm mmm...*
