Hit the road Ray!

Ray Charles (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American singer-songwriter, musician and composer. He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings. Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business”. Although his difficult life, Ray always had THE BRIGHTEST SMILE. I think this great musician deserves a portrait, and here is my version!

BTW, the movie “Ray” is strongly recommended! It’s the story of the life and career of the legendary musician.

Hit the road Ray!
