Dorothy Moore celebrates 70th birthday

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Mississippi singing legend who gave the world "Misty Blue" celebrated a milestone Thursday. Dorothy Moore is 70-years-old.

Musicians from all over the world gathered at the Queen of Hearts in Jackson tonight to cut the cake and pay tribute to Moore in a music-filled birthday party.

"I never would've thought I'd be saying that. I remember hearing my grandmother and great grandmother saying that, but I've been here 70-years and I'm Just. The music business has been so good to me," said Moore.

The 3-time Grammy nominee also sang a few tunes at her birthday party.

There was a 5-dollar fee to get in, but Moore says that money will be used to benefit needy musicians.
