Ray Charles

Ray Charles grew up in northern Florida. Despite losing his sight when he was seven, he became one of the world’s greatest pianists. He was the first artist to receive 75 percent of his record sales and the rights to his master recordings. He helped further the cause of civil rights by refusing to perform in segregated venues. He contributed over $20 million to charities for the deaf and blind as well as African-American colleges.
