Ray Charles, a Georgia native, is an American treasure. He transcended racism, cultural upheavals, and spread his music based on gospel, blues, jazz and country around the world. Ray won every major award 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. 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 has 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 exciting 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, TN. Kirk’s big, rich tenor sound is unmistakably his. We bring Clark Atlanta University’s Big Band to join in the celebration. You don’t want to miss this evening as we honor the genius of Ray Charles!
