In Focus: Minnie Riperton

Chicago, 12.07.19

Focus on Minnie Riperton

Taken from us tragically early at age 31, Chicago born vocalist Minnie Riperton left behind her legacy as one of the most unique and unforgettable voices in pop & soul. Famously gifted with a five-octave vocal range, Riperton was originally discovered while working as a receptionist at Chess Records, and was soon drafted into the role of main vocalist for Chicago psychedelic group The Rotary Connection. In her solo career she found reached bona fide pop stardom with the hugely successful ballad "Lovin' You".

This In Focus is a 60 minute trip through Minnie Riperton's lush & soulful discography, compiled by Neal Birnie.
