Ray Charles,a Georgia native son, was an American treasure who won every major
honor from the Georgia Music Hall of Fame to the Hollywood Walk of Fame...from the Kennedy
Center Honors to a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award and induction into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame.
Boasting iconic tunes from the catalog of the genius himself, we celebrate Ray's music with an
all-star cast of award- winning performers, including Take 6, a ten-time GRAMMY winning vocal sensation.
Their exciting performances defy categorization, and have led to collaborations with Quincy Jones,
Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah, and the genius, Ray Charles. Clint Holmes, a Las Vegas-based vocal star,
has been selling out concert halls around the world. His exciting soulful stylings will bring
magic to this enchanted evening. Nnenna Freelon. a six-time GRAMMY nominee and Downbeat vocalist
of the year, will add her soulful vocal style to the Ray mix. Kirk Whalum, GRAMMY award winner, hails from
Memphis. Together, they honor the genius from Georgia -- Ray Charles!
