I absolutely adored his music, a sad loss indeed.

Nobody, and I mean nobody, could sing "America the Beautiful" like Ray Charles. It gives me chills. A very talented man that will be missed.

This is so creepy, I was wondering just yesterday about when he was going to pass away. It is so sad he is one of the greats.

My lasting memory is of him playing 'Tailfeather' on the electric organ in the 'Blues Brother', and hanging the poster upside-down..

Let us all hope that, in Heaven, there is both vision and a piano handy. What a talent Mr. Charles was!
