Dorothy Moore is a world famous, grammy nominated R&B singer who still calls Mississippi home. She started singing at church and at local talent shows at Jackson's historic Alamo Theater. She toured with a 60s girl group called the Poppies, before finding her own way to success. When the StoryCorps Mobile Tour made its most recent stop here in Mississippi, Dorothy Moore stopped in with her longtime friend and manager, Marcia Weaver. They talked about Moore's career and her signature song, "Misty Blue."
