Ray Charles (1930-2004), was a true icon who broke down barriers and inspired generations of musicians to come.
Despite losing his sight at the age of seven due to glaucoma, Ray Charles refused to let his circumstances define him. He went on to become a pioneer of soul music, creating a sound that was uniquely his own by blending elements of blues, gospel, and R&B. With hits like “Georgia On My Mind,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIp9TwSEgFg and and ”Hit The Road Jack” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSiHqxgE2d0Ray, Charles became a legend in his own time.
