American R&B singer and actress Melba Moore is a 4-time Grammy Award nominee and the winner of the 1970 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical.

Hi, I'm Melba Moore, Tony Award winning actress, four time Grammy Award nominee and I've kind of learned over these many, many decades how to hang in there and keep trying and never give up and things don't always happen when you want them to, so you gotta still keep trying. And sometimes you don't always get the prize, but you can't give up, you have to keep trying and then sometimes it just looks like nothing is gonna go your way, but you still have to keep trying, you can never give up, they call it perseverance. Hang in there buddies.
