There was a time when the music world was filled with artists who shared dreams of perfect love and intimacy. These singers were unique in that they found creative ways to talk about sex in a way that was classy and poetic while at the same time inspiring generations of people around the world.
Minnie Riperton was one of these artists. She had a unique sound, a unique voice and a unique look that helped her stand out from the rest of the crowd.
Her talent was amazing and she could do everything she set her mind to. She had a beautiful whistle register and she was able to sing high notes with great accuracy.
She was able to sing background as well as lead vocals which helped her create many songs. She also was able to sing in different styles which made her an incredible singer.
When she was young Minnie had the opportunity to be in the Gems, a girl group that sang back up for many acts including Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley. This was a big step for her and she was able to be in front of the public when she was fifteen years old.
After her time with the Gems she started singing with a local rock and soul group called Rotary Connection. The group was very popular in the area and she was able to sing backup for them.
She had a chance to record a few songs for her debut album, Come To My Garden. She teamed up with Richard Rudolph and Charles Stepney to produce this album. It was not a commercial success but it was a great album. It was also the last music that she was able to create before her cancer took her life.
