Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004), known professionally as Ray Charles, was an American singer-songwriter, musician, and composer.

"LET'S GO GET STONED": He was caught backstage with marijuana and drug paraphernalia and was arrested on charges of drug abuse in 1950. He was arrested again on a narcotics charge while he was waiting in his hotel room just before a performance. Ray Charles spent a year in jail. After his release, Charles released 'Let's Go Get Stoned' to protest his conviction.

GEORGIA: Though "Georgia On My Mind" was a hit single before Charles' recording, the song has now become strongly identified with native Ray Charles in the public consciousness. On March 7, 1979, in a symbol of reconciliation in the aftermath of years of activism and national legislation resulting from the Civil Rights Movement, Charles performed the song before the Georgia General Assembly. After this performance, the Assembly adopted it as the state song on April 24.

THE HIGH PRIEST: one of his nickname is the High Priest of Soul. Among friends and fellow musicians he preferred being called "Brother Ray". He was often referred to as "The Genius".
