Ray Charles revolutionized American music and was catapulted to legendary status by the time he died in Beverly Hills at age 73.
Probably the strongest element in Ray Charles’ life, and the most concentrated driving force, was music. Ray often said, “I was born with music inside me. That’s the only explanation I know.” Ray was always at his finest live, with an appreciative audience. He was truly a gifted musician !
Merry Christmas to you all with lots of great music 🙂
In this video Ray performing ‘Merry Christmas Baby’ at The Monastery Of Ettal in Germany 1979. This is such an incredible recording without a doubt one of the greatest Christmas tunes.
