Soul singer Minnie Ripperton would’ve been 72 years old on November 8, so Trevor will commemorate her birthday and remember her music on Thursday by a playing a classic track.
Minnie started out as a backing vocalists to artists such as Etta James, Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters and Stevie Wonder, but was best known for her ballad Lovin’ You, which reached Number 2 in the UK Charts in 1975. Her music has since been sampled by many artists including A Tribe Called Quest, the Orb and Dr. Dre.

The event, now in its 46th year, is presented to individuals who inspire and support creativity and the professional lives of The Ivors Academy members, who are the independent professional association representing songwriters and composers in all genres.
