Jammin’ 105.7 and DJ Thump take today to honor the life and legacy of Minnie Riperton!

Minnie Riperton is a singer that is renowned for her whistling technique and 5-octave vocal range. Her hit Loving You perfectly showcases her talent as a singer.

The song is an ode to her daughter Maya Rudolph, a former Saturday Night Live cast member.

Riperton passed away from breast cancer in 1979 at the age of 31. Listen to Riperton’s biggest hit Loving You below:
