    Mr. Charles, Have You Been Blind All Your Life?

    "Not yet."  True story.  I love that one.  It's not possible to praise Ray Charles too highly.  Like Nina Simone, he too recorded some awful material, "I can see clearly now," and other pop rubbish, not to mention the time he spent doing...

    A Legend

    His Voice

    I love his voice.  He has an amazing voice.  I also look up to people with disabilities that don't let their disability hold them back.  He is a great artist with some very beautiful songs.
