Bootsy remembers Minnie Ripperton

ClassicMusicTelevision.Com presents Minnie Ripperton

Bootsy Collins posted a message to his Facebook page today:

"Remembering Minnie Julia Riperton (November 8,– July 12, 1979)...singer-songwriter best known for her vocal range of five-and-a-half octaves, and her 1975 single "Lovin' You". How many Happies can we give to this very special legend? SHOW YR LOVE & HIT THAT LOVE BUTTON."

In honor of Bootsy and Minnie Ripperton, this is no better place to watch this take of "Lovin' You", which was filmed on the 1970's music television program Midnight Special. Enjoy!

There is no official Minnie Ripperton website online yet, but there is a nice unofficial tribute site here.
