Ray Charles: demigod

I'm no connoisseur of the music of Ray Charles (didn't even know he'd died, sorry) but there was a program on Channel 10 tonight (NSW, Australia) which made me think I should be. Despite the deadening presence of celebrities, Genius - A Night for Ray Charles was great. Songs from Stevie Wonder and B.B. King, music, dancing - what more could you ask for?

Sometimes I forget what life's about. Music sometimes makes me remember. RIP Ray Charles.
