Ray Charles

 

 

September 23th, 1930 - June 10th, 2004

American singer, songwriter, arranger, and pianist

 

Ray Charles, blind at the age of 7 and orphaned at 15, learned music in a specialized institute. In the Fifties, he established his soul-music style by bringing together gospel and rhythm’n’blues. It was the record house Atlantic Records that brought out his first successes, including I've Got a Woman. But it was ABC Paramount which introduced him to the white public and made him the top black American voice. The result was smash hits such as Unchain my heart and Georgia on my mind. Ray Charles did not give up on musical tours till a very advanced age.
