Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004), known professionally as Ray Charles, was an American singer-songwriter, musician, and composer. Among friends and fellow musicians he preferred being called “Brother Ray.” He was often referred to as “The Genius.” Charles was blind from the age of seven.

I love the rich sound of Ray Charles’ voice. One of my favorite songs he did with Willie Nelson, titled “Seven Spanish Angels.”
