GUEST,Seth in Olympia Folklore: Ray Charles on the money (7) RE: Folklore: Ray Charles on the money 01 Nov 04


I raised my kids on his versions of "Lift Every Voice and Sing" and " America the Beautiful". My Dad got really annoyed with me in the 1950's when I played "What'd I Say" about 50 times a day. He brought Black and white, city and country, old and young together through his art. He came from nowhere, poor and blind, and became famous all through the universe(sound waves just keep on goin') Can't get more American than that. Yeah, quarter or twenty, put him on the money.
