It is amazing how he could play considering he couldn't see anything. I tried to learn to play the piano and I stunk at it. And I was able to see the keys and notes. He had a gift for music.

Ray Charles, the Grammy-winning crooner who blended gospel and blues in such crowd-pleasers as "What'd I Say" and heartfelt ballads like "Georgia on My Mind," died Thursday, a spokesman said. He was 73.

Charles died at his Beverly Hills home surrounded by family and friends, said spokesman Jerry Digney.

Charles' last public appearance was alongside Clint Eastwood on April 30, when the city of Los Angeles designated the singer's studios, built 40 years ago in central Los Angeles, as a historic landmark.

Hope this isn't wrong to ask but does anyone know what he died of?

Sad news indeed, I wasn't even aware that he wasn't well.

He was a great musician and no doubt an inspiration to handicapped people everywhere. I still see him everyday in those Powerball commercials.

You know I always found it strange growing up that I had an Uncle who was very racist.. Yet he was a huge Ray Charles fan, He owned just about every LP and 8-track available at the time and Ray Charles piano and voice were always heard in my Uncle's home.

He was an amazing man, and one of the few humans who's legacy and music will indeed live forever.

That's a damn shame, he will be missed.


UM_Gazz about your Uncle, looks like that's the power of music, and I guess you can respect someone without liking them.

Its sad to see him go. I'm not a fan of his music, but he was very talented at performing.

I had no idea he was ailing either.

only 73!! I thought he was much older
i'm sure he will be missed, but he did leave us a nice legacy to remember him by.

I just developed a new appreciation for his music, even though I've never heard of any of his songs. ***goes to limewire ***sees amazing grace and what a wonderful world...........** on second thought maybe I'll look the other way


***What a wonderful world -- I saw that in a michael moore video *** It's like documentary music...
