Melba Moore net worth: Melba Moore is an American award-winning singer who has a net worth of $30 thousand. Melba Moore made headlines after it was discovered that she had lost millions of dollars and was living on welfare. Melba Moore comes from a musical family. Her father was Teddy Hill, a saxophonist and her mother was R&B singer Bonnie Davis. Before she was known for her hits, 'You Stepped into My Life' and 'Love's Coming at Ya', Moore worked as a music teacher. She took the plunge into the acting and music industry and the gamble paid off: Moore won a Tony Award for Best Actress in the musical, Purlie. Following her success, there was no stopping Moore: she appeared in blockbusters, churned out critically acclaimed albums (including Peach Melba) throughout the 1970's. Moore co-starred with then-lover Clifton Davis in a successful TV variety show. She later married business promoter Charles Huggins and they started Huesh Productions in 1975, launching careers of R&B favourites Freddy Jackson and Meli'sa Morgan. Throughout the eighties, Moore continued to produce hits, winning string of Grammy Awards. From the nineties, Moore returned to the stage, appearing in Les Miserables and Ain't Misbehavin'. She also appeared in Fighting Temptations, starring Cuba Gooding Jr and Beyonce. In 2011, Moore released her first album in years, generating a minor hit, Love Is.
Beatrice Melba Smith (born October 29, 1945), best known by her stage name, Melba Moore is an American disco, R&B singer and actress. She is the daughter of saxophonist Teddy Hill and R&B singer Bonnie Davis.
Melba Moore was born in 1945 in New York City, New York to parents Teddy Hill and Gertrude Melba Smith, later known as Bonnie Davis. She initially was raised in Harlem, New York until the age of nine when her mother remarried a jazz pianist named Clement Mooreman. Moore attended Newark Arts High School in Newark, New Jersey. Her mother, Bonnie Davis had a No. 1 R&B hit with "Don't Stop Now", prior to Melba's birth. Although her biological father was Big Band leader and saxophonist Teddy Hill, it was her stepfather Mooreman (who played on "Don't Stop Now") who became a prime influence and encouragement in Moore's musical pursuits and talent, insisting she learn to play the piano. Initially, Moore graduated from college and worked as a music teacher, but soon opted to switch careers. Moore chose her stage name by shortening her stepfather's surname from Moorman to Moore and using her middle name, "Melba".[citation needed]
Moore began her performing career in 1967 as Dionne in the original cast of the musical Hair along with Ronnie Dyson and Diane Keaton. Moore replaced Keaton in the role of Sheila. In 1970, Moore won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for her role in Purlie (she portrayed Lutiebelle). She would not return to Broadway afterwards until 1978 when she appeared (as Marsinah) with Eartha Kitt in Timbuktu!, but left the show after a few weeks and was replaced by Vanessa Shaw. Following the success of Purlie, Moore landed two big screen film roles, released two successful albums including 1970's I Got Love and Look What You're Doing to the Man and co-starred with actor Clifton Davis in the then-couple's own successful variety television series in 1972. Both Moore and Davis revealed that the show was canceled after
