Love’s Taken Over with Funds for UNCF

Love has definitely taken over with the support of many to raise funds for the United Negro College Fund’s (UNCF) scholarship recipients. On Thursday, March 28, AT&T presented, “An Intimate Evening with Chante’ Moore” at the Al Hambra Palace in Chicago to support students involved in the organization. The evening started with a private VIP reception which allowed guest to enjoy complementary hors d’oeuvres as well as have a meet and great with the R&B songstress, Chante’ Moore.

After all the excitement, the moment many attendees wanted for… to be serenaded by the R&B songstress, Chante’ Moore. Gracing the crowd with her top hits including “Love’s Taken Over” and “Chante’s Got a Man,” the R&B songstress even took some request so the crowd can bring the Chicago culture of Steppin’ to the beat!

It was an evening with love taken over to support UNCF’s mission to give deserving students a chance to aim for the stars!
