This concert/theatre work brings the music and the story of the great Ray Charles to vivid life! Portraying Ray, master pianist/vocalist, Kenny Brawner leads his 11-piece orchestra and three sultry vocalists (a la the Raelettees), performing the American legend’s most popular hits: What’d I Say?, I Got a Woman, Mess Around, and Georgia on My Mind, a blazing hot duet of Baby It’s Cold Outside, and many more! The music is interwoven with monologues depicting on how gospel, blues, jazz, and country influences Ray’s style, while also reflecting on American social history, his epic battle with drugs, and his triumphant return home to Georgia.
