Ray Charles- A Real American Legend died today



Ray Charles was very influential in my musical life. I had the pleasure of seeing him perform live one time, and I will never forget it. He was a real American artist, a real contributor to American culture and a great talent. His is best known for his jazz meets gospel style of music. He was totally hip, totally cool, always smiling and enjoying the music. God bless him for bringing such joy into our lives.

Ray Charles always had high approval ratings.
Long Live Ray Charles!
