Charles “Gator” Moore

Detroit’s Charles “Gator” Moore was an associate from the Transitions, a trio assembled by New Release and Bell Biv DeVoe’s Michael Bivins. The group, who mixed throwback and modern methods to R&B, had been authorized to Bivins’ Uptown-supported, Universal-distributed Biv 10 label and released an recording, Back da Times, in 2001. Despite some solid songwriting and shows — the group also presented up-and-comer Balewa Muhammad — and productions from Naughty by Nature’s Kay Gee, the recording didn’t fare well commercially. The Transitions consequently break up, and Moore ultimately established himself like a single performer. A stirring and faithful cover of Sam Cooke’s “A BIG CHANGE Is Gonna Arrive” appeared for the soundtrack for Tyler Perry’s Daddy’s GIRLS. In January 2015, Moore released a lovely midtempo solitary, “Makin’ It Experience,” for the Jus Therefore Scandalous label.
