Love Lives Forever is the sixth studio album by American soul singer Minnie Riperton. It consists of tracks Riperton recorded in 1978 during vocal sessions prior to her death, and music recorded after her early death, occurred on July 12, 1979.

Minnie Riperton - vocals. Tennyson Stephens - acoustic piano. I love love LOVE this song, it always make me think of my closest family and friends, and never fails to brings me to tears. It was spotlighted recently in performance on TV One's R&B Divas at a benefit for women's breast cancer, which I felt was such a beautiful tribute to Minnie's legacy in art, sickness, and health: unfortunately in true tv show fashion they focused on other aspects of the show instead of the beautiful performance by singer Chante Moore, who did.

After Perfect Angel, Riperton and Richard Rudolph started on Riperton's third album, Adventures in Paradise (1975). Joe Sample of The Crusaders cowrote the title song, "Adventures in Paradise", and Crusaders producer Stewart Levine co-produced the album. While shooting a promotional clip for the album, she was attacked by a lion, but was not seriously injured. After Riperton died, several artists contributed vocals to tracks she had recorded before her death, to help compile Richard Rudolph's final tribute to his wife, Love Lives Forever. Included, among others, were Peabo Bryson, Michael Jackson, and Stevie Wonder. Riperton's last single, "Give Me Time," was released in 1980.

floating hand in hand Like in the movies everyone can tell that I'm in love with you I never knew what love could do My heart begins to pound whenever you're around I'm never coming down Ohhh Noooo It's a quarter after two.
