Ray Charles is the proof that the American Dream is alive and well. Losing his sight at an early age due to untreated glaucoma, he took up the piano and never looked back, fashioning a career that touched millions of listeners and inspired generations of performers. On Charles’s death, Joe Levy, music editor of the Rolling Stone magazine, offered the following tribute: ‘Ray Charles is the guy who combined the sacred and the secular, he combined gospel music and the blues. He’s called a genius because no-one could confine him to one genre. He wasn’t just rhythm and blues… Except for BB King, there’s no other figure who’s been as important or has endured so long.’ Enjoy an early, exciting chapter from a heart-warming American success story.
