Minnie Riperton(1948-1979) songstress of the 70s song, "Loving You". mother of SNL Maya Rudolph. She had a great career that was cut short by her illness with breast cancer. still, her music and memories live on in many of us.
Celine! yes, she has been a favorite artist of mine since I was 8 years old. I chose this song because when first asked to sing it Celine was unsure of whether or not she could hit the high note at the end of the song. So when it was decided that Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey would sing the song instead Celine reconsidered and ended up with this fabulous remake of All by Myself.
