This a very good read on Ray Charles. I never realized how hard he had it growing up & through out the years.

God rest his soul.

He was the epitome of the "American entertainer". May he RIP!

I wonder who'll be next - they tend to go in threes.

One of the first songs, that I can remember, was "I Can't Stop Loving You" by Ray Charles. His part in "The Blues Brothers" was priceless. too.

Such a great loss.

Here's an interesting coincidence for you: Ray Charles sang America the Beautiful at President Reagan's 1984 inauguration and at the Republican National Convention.
