She started her solo career with the debut album Precious (1992). Next releases were A Love Supreme (1994), This Moment Is Mine (1999), Exposed (2000), followed by the duet-albums Things That Lovers Do (2003) and Uncovered/Covered (2006) with her ex-husband Kenny Lattimore.

She continued her solo work with Love the Woman (2008), and this year Moore Is More.
