Frank Sinatra called him “the only true genius in show business.” Ray Charles transcended racism, faced cultural upheavals head on, and helped bring jazz, blues and soul to the rest of the world. In honor of Black History Month, an all-star cast of performers will celebrate Ray’s life, music and undeniable spirit.
