Ray Charles (1930 – 2004) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and composer. Among friends and fellow musicians he preferred being called “Brother Ray”. He was often referred to as “The Genius”. Charles started losing his vision at the age of 5, and by 7 he was blind. He pioneered soul music during the 1950s by combining blues, R&B and gospel styles into the music he recorded for Atlantic. He contributed to the integration of country music, rhythm and blues, and pop music during the 1960s. His success remained until his death (2004).” See also: Egyptian Singer: Hamza Namira.
