Ray Charles was the essence of achievement and determination. His self destruction led to inspirations unlike any other. I admire all that he did, and pray that there will be another like him. May he rest in peace and be with us always.

Ray Charles was a visionary, despite some of his failings. In the 60's when I was at an age to be influenced by personalities in the musical field, I thought Ray was 'the BEST'. We danced, and sang and laughed with his songs.........they were the happiest times of my life. He was also a pioneer in the 'Equality for All Nations'in N.America: he made such a difference to the whole World.
