Saturday Night Live’s Maya Rudolph is the daughter of the late Minnie Riperton.
Rudolph is the daughter of the late soul singer Minnie Riperton and Jewish American composer/songwriter/producer Richard Rudolph. She was in the studio with her mother on the day Riperton recorded "Lovin' You"; one can hear her mother sing "Maya, Maya, Maya" to her near the end of the track.Minnie died at the age of 31 from breast cancer. If you’re old enough, you might remember this song she recorded in the mid 1970’s a few years before she died.
Loving you- Minnie Riperton
