Kon: "That was a record that I used to hear as a little kid, and then Tribe used it for 'Lyrics to Go,' and a couple of other people used it as well. But that is Minnie Ripperton, an amazing voice. If readers are reading this and they don't know who she is...if they listen to Mariah Carey...there would be no Mariah Carey without Minnie Ripperton."
