When Maya Rudolph sets out to learn about her past on Tuesday's episode of the PBS genealogy show Finding Your Roots, she has a simple wish – to establish an identity.

"I have this thing where I just feel I can be anyone," she tells host Henry Louis Gates Jr. of being the biracial daughter of the late soul singer Minnie Riperton and music composer and producer Richard Rudolph. "And I think being mixed, too, I kind of, sort of grew up feeling a little orphaned by the idea of my heritage."

The Saturday Night Live vet adds, "I know I'm from 'peoples,' but I don't know who they are. I want to know people's names, I want to know what they did, I want to know where they lived. I want to go as far back as possible."
