Grace Moore (December 5, 1898 - January 26, 1947) was an American operatic soprano and actress.
Born in Slabtown, Tennessee, she and her parents relocated to Chattanooga, Tennessee when she was a child. She later earned fame as an opera, Broadway and Hollywood star, and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1935 for One Night of Love.
She reportedly made racist comments and refused to appear on the same stage as an African-American performer.
She was at one point chosen by Florenz Ziegfeld as one of the most beautiful women in the world. Moore's life story was made into a movie, So This is Love, in 1953, starring North Carolina-born fellow Southerner and singer Kathryn Grayson.
Grace Moore died in a plane crash near the Copenhagen, Denmark airport on January 26, 1947, at the age of 48. She had been planning to convert to Roman Catholicism, but did not do so by the time she got on the plane, so she died a Protestant.
Among the other victims was also Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden, then heir apparent to the Swedish throne and father of the present Swedish king, King Carl XVI Gustaf.
