Ray Charles

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American musician known as Ray Charles (to avoid confusion with champion boxer Sugar Ray Robinson.) He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings with Atlantic Records. He also helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums. While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company.Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business.” more »

If you were mine,
I could be a ruler of kings
And if you were mine,
I could do such wonderful things,
I'd say to a star, "stop where you are,
Light up my lover's way."

And every star above you would obey
And if you were mine
I would live for your love alone
To kneel at your shrine

I would give up all that I own
Yes, even my heart, even my life
I'd trade it all for you
And think I was lucky, too
If you were mine.
