Rita Moore Barber


Rita Moore Barber was born in Terrell, Texas and raised in a Baptist family. She gave her heart to the Lord at the age of 16 during a service led by her father, who was pastor of the church at the time.

Gospel music has been an integral part of her life since she can remember. "My earliest memories as a young child are sitting in my grandmother's lap in the choir." Since then, Rita has sung as a soloist, formed a female trio and sang with a quartet with three brothers. She has often seen God work miracles in many lives.

Rita has an outstanding style of low harmony singing, developed through experience with a long line of alto singers. Her extended vocal range allows her to sing anything from low harmony to high tenor, depending on the music.

In the 1990's, Rita helped form the Birthright trio, where she sang and began her songwriting career. After 1992, Rita took a break from writing until 2013, when she and John Graves co-wrote Home Forevermore. That song jumpstarted Rita's songwriting and she currently has dozens of songs to her credit.. Rita currently sings with Birthright and writes and arranges music for the group.

Her ministry goal is to follow the leadership of the Holy Spirit through prayer, testimony and music.
