Ray Charles - Genius From Georgia


Brother Ray.

Ray Charles Robinson grew up with his brother in poor conditions with his mother Aretha at the time of racial segregation. He learned to play the piano in a backyard. He went blind from glaucoma at the age of seven. Nine months earlier he had observed his brother drowning. After the early death of his mother, Ray left the school for the blind and began to build his career as a professional artist at the age of 14. He achieved his first big successes at Atlantic Records and his first million-seller, WHAT‘D I SAY. Hit after hit followed on the ABC-Paramount label. GEORGIA ON MY MIND, today the anthem of the state of Georgia, HIT THE ROAD JACK or I CAN‘T STOP LOVING YOU are among the greatest and Ray Charles became the most successful entertainer of his generation and his influence has stamped his style on the development of Rhythm & Blues, Country and Soul. Countless music awards, guest appearances in films and the Oscar-winning film RAY about his life decorate this extraordinary career. The Rolling Stone Magazine lists Ray Charles on number 2 of the 100 best singers and on number 10 of the greatest musicians of all times.
