Old School Saturday Jam: Minnie Riperton


*singing*” back down memory lane”*…. This is one of my favorite songs by Minnie Riperton. She had a voice like no other the way she would hit those high octave notes. Omg!! She was definitely a gifted and talented singer gone way too soon. Minnie Riperton was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at a young age and died at the age of 31. Between that time though Minnie still toured and was a spokeswoman for the American  Cancer Society. She was one of the first celebrities to come out and speak on her diagnosis of Breast Cancer. Her song Memory Lane was on her last album many said that  this was her greatest work. I am so glad that she was able to bless us with such a beautiful voice on her short time here on earth.   Listening to her dynamic voice should definitely put you in a good mood on this beautiful fall day! Enjoy your saturday!!
