Georgia on My Mind: The Music of Ray Charles
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 Honors to a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame.
Tonight we celebrate Ray’s music with an all-star cast of award-winning performers:
Take 6: Ten-time Grammy-winning vocal sensation. Their exciting performances defy categorization, and have led to collaborations with Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah, and Ray Charles.
Clint Holmes: 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: 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, Tennessee…. Kirk’s funky R&B sax sound has been heard, hit after hit.
We honor the genius from Georgia—Ray Charles!
