    Grateful

    The great hits of Ray Charles belong to my childhood memories.  I cant stop loving you and Georgia are world heritage.  His songs have the power of hymns. His passion, his mastership and performance made him into an icon.  The beauty I associate with America is...

    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.

    A Legend

    Ray Charles was amazing. He knew how to treat a song with respect and make it sound great without singing a lot of fast paced notes. "Georgia on my mind" is a masterpiece but im not sure he was the one who wrote it though. "Hit the road Jack" is just a classic...

    I was bought up listening to Ray Charles. My Mum gave me all her records she had of him. {vinyl}. All the old favorites, "Hit The Road Jack", Unchain My Heart"..on and on. One of my personal favotites is, "Busted". I love the words and laugh.

    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...
