Dorothy Moore - File

Almost 38 years after it first scaled music charts in America and Europe, 'Misty Blue', the landmark hit single from soul singer Dorothy Moore, continues to ride the charts.

The song was recorded in 1973 but it became a sizeable hit in 1976, almost one year after it was initially released.

Today, Misty Blue is visible among the top-selling tracks on the iTunes Blues charts.Moore is appreciative that a new generation of fans have identified with her classic cover of the song.

"Misty Blue was a hit before the digital, music video and iTunes age. It is really good to see that people are still gravitating towards the song after all these years," Moore said in an interview last week.

Moore is among the headliners for Golden Promotions To Mom with Love concert, which is scheduled for the LIME Golf Academy on Sunday, May 11. She will share stage with the likes of 1970s pop rock band Dr Hook, 1980s rhythm and blues balladeer Glenn Jones, as well as local acts Karen Smith, Gem Myers, Pat Kelly, Errol Dunkley, K-Coneil and Patrick Budoo.

Moore has promised a musical treat for fans this Mother's Day. Fans will not only hear the veteran rhythm and blues vocalist deliver Misty Blue, but other chart hits such as Funny How Time Slips Away, Special Occasion, and I Believe You.
