From the wiki: “R&B singer Jackie Moore is best-known for her gold single 1970 song ‘Precious, Precious’, which reached #30 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1971. Her 1978 single, ‘Personally’, peaked at a disappointing #92 on the R&B chart, not even charting on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was later covered in 1982 by Karla Bonoff (‘Tell Me Why‘, ‘All My Life‘) and charted in the US Top 20; a 1983 cover by Country singer Ronnie McDowell charted Top 10 on the US Country singles chart.”
