After suffering for years from severe diabetes and complications,
Malaco/Savoy recording artist Rev. James Moore
was received by his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ early on
June 7th, 2000 in Memphis, at the age of 44. GospelFlava.com
was blessed by this man of God, and by the immense musical
talent that he was gifted with, and which God allowed him
to share. We give him tribute, and offer thanks to God for his
life here on earth.

"When I speak of singing with an anointed voice from on high, I must mention one name specifically. James Moore. He had one of the most anointed voices that I have heard within the Gospel music community. He consistently delivered, and I have been consistently blessed by his ministry down through the years. His perseverance and tenacity to battle through his personal challenges and circumstances has been an encouragement to all who minister the Gospel through music. We are grateful to God for sharing him. I applaud you loudly, "James, you are one of gospel music treasures. Thank you for sharing your gifts, sharing your talents, and sharing your soul with us." Steven Ford (producer, SyRue Productions).
"I just heard the news of Rev. Moore's passing just a few hours ago, and I must say that I was stunned. I just saw James in Las Vegas about a month ago, and walked up to him and touched his arm and said hello. The moment that he heard my voice, he responded in his usual way when we would bump into each other at industry events, with a big hug and kiss. He will be sadly missed.... I respect him as being one of the greatest voices in Gospel music history, and our hearts go out to his family." Tara Griggs-Magee (V.P./ General Manager, Verity Records).
"Rev. James Moore was a very big influence on my musical career. His effect on this industry will never be forgotten. I thank and praise God that I had the pleasure of knowing and meeting and being ministered to by him and his gift in word and song....I will miss him tremendously." Min. Charles Woolfork.
"He was a great anointed man who blessed the music world with the powerful gift of singing. He will really be missed not only by me, but the Gospel music world at large." Erick Matthews (aka Ematt).
"The magnitude of his talent will never be known, nor will the impact on the myriad of lives that the ministry of James Moore had touched. Uniquely gifted and anointed, the legacy of James Moore will continue to live on. I rejoice in knowing that though absent from this body, he is present with the Lord." Jeffrey LaValley.
"It was an honor working with him, especially on the I Will Trust in the Lord project. He will be tremendously missed. God-Poppy, we love you" Kevin Davidson (and Tonya and Kierra).
"It was heart saddening to hear of the passing of one of the greatest men of God. I thank God for allowing our paths to cross. James is, and shall always be one of the greatest singers in the world. I was honored to be apart of his last recording and through that event, an everlasting friendship was created. He will truly be missed. I am praying for his family, God bless you." Darius "Scatman" Twyman.
