After several more years of performing with multiple gospel vocal groups, large and small, she self-released her first solo recording, an EP titled Unlimited Praise, in 2004. That led to a record deal on Tyscot Records. The label released her self-titled debut Lucinda Moore in 2006. The album landed in the Top 20 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart and spawned the hit single “Pressure Into Praise” which reached #13 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart and spent 20 weeks in the Top 30. Lucinda also recorded a re-make of the popular Vickie Winans song “Safe In His Arms.”
