|RAY CHARLES, from his site, see link|
I love Charles, always have by the way, and just seem to havta read everything 'bout him that I find. So, today, I was looking up Ray Charles tunes that I love and posting them on Facebook...it's just felt like a a 'Ray Charles' kinda day for me. I'll post some of his tunes below. O.K?....Anyway, where was I?....Oh yeah.....posting Ray Charles tunes on Facebook....'ah'....when I thought to myself....wonder what music is there today online?....WOW! Obama singing at a Whitehouse Ray Charles Music Event....well, I had to see that, didn't I?....and, that's how this story got started
First, ...Let me tell ya more about Charles. O.K?.He was known as 'the high priest of Soul', recorded on the ABC label. This is a quote from WIKIPEDIA.....' While he was with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be granted artistic control by a mainstream record company'..WOW!...he combined R and B, gospel, jazz, country and pop styles together....making his very own unique sound...I loved it too. THE ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE rated Charles as number 10 in 2004 in' one of the greatest Artists of all time', of course. So, I shouldn't be surprised if our President likes him too....lotta us do...or did. Ray Charles died in 2004 of liver disease. Jan
