Have You Heard Nia Long’s Mother Sing? You Gotta Hear This!
Have you ever heard of Talita Long? If not, say hello to the mother of actress Nia Long, educator, artist, and vocalist. What we love here at ILOSM is finding these cool facts about family members who are connected to entertainers that we love so much. We’ve covered the children of Barry White, Eric Benet, Al Green and so many more who are following in the footsteps of their parents. But now we’ve got a parent of an actress, with a unique voice and a five-octave range.
She isn’t new to using her vocal chops, as she’s composed music for many years and she’s performed in venues of all sizes. Check out the video of her performance of Denise Williams’ “Free” and Minnie Riperton’s “Inside My Love” and tell us what you think family!
