The Honorable Carol Schwartz, Melba Moore

Tony Award winning performer Melba Moore conquered her audience at the Jewish Community Center (DCJCC) in her Nov. 8 concert at the Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater. Event Chair David Bruce Smith termed Moore a “Renaissance woman” renowned for her four-octave range. When she took over Diane Keaton’s role in Hair, she became the first black actress to replace a white lead on Broadway. The evening’s repertoire included standards by Irving Berlin and Duke Ellington. In closing, Moore proposed to a toast “to health, wealth, to your happiness and to mine.”
