After being signed, Moore recorded several hit records, including “Love’s Taken Over,” “It’s Alright,” “I’m What You Need,” “Old School Lovin,” and “Free” (a Deniece Williams cover). Moore recorded “Your Home Is in My Heart” with Boyz II Men for the How Stella Got Her Groove Back soundtrack.

The single was also certified Gold by the RIAAfor sales of over 500,000 copies in America.
In 2002, she won a Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul Single, Group, Band or Duo for “Contagious” featuring The Isley Brothers. She also appeared on the hit UPN show Girlfriends, singing Minnie Riperton’s “Lovin’ You.” Also that year, Moore sang on Kenny G’s single “One More Time,” which registered on the Smooth Jazz and adult contemporary singles charts.
