Moten's biggest hit single was "Come In Out of the Rain", which, although a moderate hit in 1993 on the Billboard Hot 100, was a No. 5 adult contemporary hit, and also reached the Top 10 in the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at No. 8 in 1994. A follow up single, "So Close to Love", reached No. 35 in the UK Top 40.
