Jackie Moore (born 1946, Jacksonville, Florida[1]) is an American R&B singer. She is most well known for her gold single 1970 song "Precious, Precious," which reached #30 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on March 6, 1971. This disc sold over one million copies, and received a gold disc awarded by the R.I.A.A. in March 1971.[1]

Also noteworthy was her 1979 disco hit "This Time Baby," which hit #1 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The track reached #49 in the UK Singles Chart.[2] The latter would later be sampled for the 2005 dance radio and club hit "Love on My Mind" by the Freemasons featuring Amanda Wilson. Moore also had a pop chart hit (#42) with Bunny Sigler and Phil Hurtt's upbeat "Sweet Charlie Babe" in the fall of 1973, which she recorded with the Philadelphia Strings and Horns.

"This Time Baby" was a featured song in the video game, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.
