Personal Fact of Ray Charles

Ray Charles was the forerunner of soul music, assimilating other genres like gospel, pop, R&B and country to create a new form of music, that went on to produce hits like Hit the Road Jack, Georgia On My Mind and Unchain My Heart. Considered the Father of Soul Music, Ray Charles left an indelible impression in the world of music that is still prevalent and enduring even after his death. Best-known for his secular lyrics and his popular jazz arrangements in music, his works were largely improvisational.

Over his career that spanned nearly five decades, he inspired a number of other musicians and singer/songwriters. What made him an even bigger international star was the fact that he did not let his visual impairment get in the way of his music, his personal life and his career. He was a man who loved to shoulder responsibilities and was extremely friendly with his peers and other musicians.

He is now remembered for his pleasing, amicable personality and is considered one of the Godfathers of soul music. From Confession Blues to Whatd I Say, his songs went on to chart some of the most popular international countdowns and continue to reverberate in the world of music today. Scroll further for more.
