The Gable Heart Beats Foundation (GHB) announces that Motown legend Pete Moore of The Miracles has joined their Community. The GHB Community is comprised of musicians, athletes, comedians, and celebrities working with the Foundation to raise awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, and other forms of heart disease. The Community also promotes mandatory heart screenings for young people everywhere.
Pete Moore was a bass singer and songwriter for The Miracles, a band he started with his childhood friend Smokey Robinson in 1955. Mr. Moore has since written a catalog of hits, including “The Tracks of My Tears,” which alone sold over one million records for The Miracles within two years of its release. In addition, Pete Moore has written a catalog of songs, many of which were recorded by artists such as Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross, The Rolling Stones, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Michael Jackson, and many more.
“I admire that the Gable Heart Beats Foundation is using music to raise awareness of heart disease,” Pete shared. His twin daughters, Monique and Monette, have also joined the Community to support GHB’s efforts across the globe. They have agreed to influence and support the Foundation’s musical direction.
“Pete Moore is a music legend as far as we’re concerned,” said GHB’s Executive Director, Amy Mayo. “The love, guidance, and support we already get from Pete and his family just inspires us to keep driving forward,” she continued. “Pete’s circle of influence runs wide and deep, which helps broaden the Foundation’s impact on people.” The Gable Heart Beats Foundation welcomes Pete Moore and his daughters to the team.
