Melba Moore will take the stage in Chicago to launch “Still Standing”

Tony-Award Winner, 3x Grammy Nominee, Actress, and professional music educator, Melba Moore will team up with the Kroc Center Theater located at 1250 West 119th Street Chicago, Illinois Friday, August 12, 2016, at 7:30PM. Melba will launch her 10-city tour “Still Standing” The Melba Moore Story, filled with 90 minutes of music and the debut anthem single “What Can I Do To Survive” available on amazon.com and iTunes. The show will make you laugh, cry and bring you to your feet. Melba will take you on a roller coaster ride through R&B, Gospel, Jazz, Blues and hits from the past. Not to mention the dramatic choreographed scenes giving you a taste of Broadway while delivering her ups and downs, failed marriage, a millionaire-to-welfare and being homeless. Melba tells it all in this touching performance and movement “Still Standing” The Melba Moore Story.

When asked Melba why did you decide to share your life story in a one woman show she replied “If I don’t take my life experience and share the trials with the world I am truly not giving back the lesson. This is my testimony and blueprint for others to believe in yourself and step out on faith. My message and Still Standing movement is simple, a failure is a person who never tries, but trying defeats being a failure and know you can survive and Stand through it all.”

While helping communities on the tour, Melba will make a donation to the National Women Veterans United a 501(c) 3 organization by hosting a food drive to help fill their food pantry as they assist women veterans in Chicago. Event attendees can bring nonperishable items to the show and a representative from NWVU will be there to greet and thank them for their support.
