I looked up Minnie Ripperton on Google a couple years ago and saw that she was Maya Randolph's mother. That fact surprised me as well. She died very young from breast cancer. She was only 36 I think.

My favorite Ripperton song is Inside My Love (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVniMFJYY1o&feature=related). I just love it!

I'm always trying to sing "Lovin' You" when there's a lull in conversation. It usually ends with me going, "La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la laaaa la laaa la laaa, doo bee doo ba doo ... I can't do it!"

31. :(

I just watched the performance of Lovin' You linked above. Dang, she had pipes. Incredible whistle register.

I had that on a 45. Lord, I'm old. I think "Back Down Memory Lane" is my favorite of hers.

Minnie Ripperton had such an amazing vocal range--five and a half octaves :eek:. Take that, Mariah Carey.

Oh wait, I know who she is... she was in Bridesmaids and is now on some sitcom, right?

Yes, the sitcom is Up All Night I think. All I really know about it is that it has Christina Applegate and Will Arnett as well.

No, she was 31.
And this is my fave Minnie song too - it's very sexy!

Does Maya sing?

She did quite a bit of singing on SNL, all with a comedic twist.
Maya has a beautiful and powerful voice.

Maya can do a dead-on imitation of Whitney Houston.

Yeah, Mariah has nothing on Minnie.
