Minnie Julia Riperton-Rudolph (November 8, 1947 – July 12, 1979), Known professionally as Minnie Riperton, was an American singer-songwriter best known for her 1975 single “Lovin’ You”. “Memory Lane” was a hit from the album, and was arguably Riperton’s greatest work. Riperton incorporated the sadness of the ending of a relationship while suddenly shifting to cries of “I don’t want to go,” “save me,” “now I’m slippin’ fast,” “thought it was over; here I go again,” and “travelin’ down, faster than the speed of sound.” It is thought that “Memory Lane” was her farewell to her family and to the world. Her last televised performance was on an episode of The Merv Griffin Show (aired July 6, 1979), during which she performed Memory Lane and Lover and Friend. Yt

Such a talent, we lost her far too soon.
Listening to Minnie’s music opens into a special place in our hearts where she is with us still. How interesting it would be to do a follow up on her family today. 🤔
