((NAT OF GEORGIA ON MY MIND With his hoarse voice, dark glasses, and wide smile, Ray Charles and his music could pierce a soul and rock a full house. The master of blues, jazz, gospel and country and western music explained his gifts this way..."I was born with music inside me, that's the only explanation I know of. Called a national treasure and an international phenonomen, Charles took aspects of gospel, added blues based lyrics and virtually invented a new genre of music....called soul. Charles singing....."Everybody gets the blues"....
Charles live his music. Growing up in extreme poverty in a segregated south, by age seven, he was totally blind from glaucoma. Charles was sent to a school for the blind where he learned to play the piano, clarinet and saxophone as well as read and write music in Braille. Orphaned at 15, he struck out on his own, performing in bands around Florida....and eventually headed to Seattle. There he met an even younger musician named Quincy Jones...marking the intertwining of two musical lifetimes. Charles was equally at home with major symphony orchestras of the world as he was with his own family of musicians. He won 12 Grammys for hits like Georgia on My Mind, Hit the Road Jack, I Can't Stop Loving You, Crying Time and Living for the City. RAY CHARLES: If the Master took me tomorrow, I have no regrets. As MLK said, I have been to the mountain top. With a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a Kennedy Center honor and a National Medal of Arts, the prolific Charles performed into his seventies... his rags to riches and triumph over tragedy story, part and parcel of the American Dream.
