Ray Charles, a Georgia native son, was an American treasure who won every major honor from the Georgia music hall of fame to the Hollywood walk of fame…from the Kennedy Honors to a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award and induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. 

He transcended racism, cultural upheavals, and spread his music based on Gospel, Blues, Jazz and Country around the world…he was a genius!

Boasting iconic tunes from the catalogue of the genius himself, the artists make each song a winning part of the tapestry that is Ray Charles’ music. 

This show celebrates Ray’s music with an all-star cast of award winning performers.
