For those of you who missed the Minnie Riperton tribute last night in Downtown LA I thought I’d share a little rehearsal recording taken the day before at our rehearsal for the show. There will be more official footage to come from the performance (the night was recorded and filmed!) but for those of you who follow the Catacombs, I have created this space for the less official insights & a chance to share some of the things I keep and record on the sidelines.
The night was such a blessing and incredible tribute to Minnie Riperton, an artist who left us too soon, but what a legacy and spirit she left behind. It was truly resurrected in the music last night! What blew me away was the kindness beauty, and passion of every singer involved in this show too. Honoured to have been a part of the night!
So here’s a little iPhone recording of my rehearsal for ‘Inside My Love’ (one of the straight up smoothest, most beautiful songs ever) & some photos of the night.
Highlight: When the legendary Leon Ware (writer & producer of the song ‘Inside My Love’ with Minnie herself!) completely surprised everyone (including me!) and joined me on stage out of the blue to sing the song with me. What a trip.
RIP Minnie. Your music lives on & flowers endlessly in our hearts.
