Ray charles and his orchestra i gotta woman - Ray (2004) - IMDb


Charles was born Ray Charles Robinson on Sept. 23, 1930, in Albany, Ga. He slowly began to lose his eyesight as a child; by age 7, he was blind. He went to St. Augustine's School for the Deaf and Blind, where he began formal piano lessons. He studied classically there, but he enjoyed sneaking jazz and blues licks into his practicing.

Raised on a sharecropping plantation in Northern Florida , Ray Charles Robinson went blind at the age of seven, shortly after witnessing his younger brother drown. Inspired by a fiercely independent mother who insisted he make his own way in the world, Charles found his calling and his gift behind a piano keyboard. Touring across the chitlin circuit , the soulful singer gained a reputation before exploding onto the worldwide stage when he pioneered the incorporation of rhythm and blues, rock and roll , gospel , country , jazz and orchestral influences into his inimitable style.
