Ray charles and his orchestra hit the road jack the danger zone - Ray Charles | Biography & History | AllMusic


Ray Charles was born September 23, 1930 in Albany, Georgia, but grew up mainly in Greenville, Florida. His family quickly became familiar with tragedy - Ray's younger brother drowned when Ray was 5, and Ray, himself, progressively lost his vision until he became entirely blind at age 7.

Arguably one of the most brilliant interpretive albums ever released, it did more to integrate modern American music than almost any other LP in history. And although he more or less settled into an oldies-circuit level of fame after that, he remains an institution for his insistence on carrying different forms of music to places they shouldn'’t logically have visited.

Raised on a sharecropping plantation in Northern Florida , Ray Charles Robinson went blind at the age of seven, shortly after witnessing his younger brother drown. Inspired by a fiercely independent mother who insisted he make his own way in the world, Charles found his calling and his gift behind a piano keyboard. Touring across the chitlin circuit , the soulful singer gained a reputation before exploding onto the worldwide stage when he pioneered the incorporation of rhythm and blues, rock and roll , gospel , country , jazz and orchestral influences into his inimitable style.
