Brother Ray tells Ray Charles' extraordinary life-story in his own, unique voice. Now with added material, this new edition is published to coincide with the release of Ray - Universal Pictures biopic starring Jamie Foxx. On June 10th 2004, Ray Charles died aged 73 and the world lost a music legend. The story of his life was a compelling one to say the least, encompassing elements of poverty, blindness, racism, drug addiction, sex, gambling and then finally fame, fortune and respect - the constant remained a genius for music. Born in Georgia at the height of the Depression, Charles' impoverished family travelled throughout the Deep South in search of work. By the age of four his vision had started to deteriorate and he was soon blind and assigned to a special school where he studied music and maths. At the age of 16, following the death of his mother, he left school to become a professional musician, playing wherever he could and struggling to survive. He soon became a popular local talent, scoring a series of minor hits, and by the age of 32 he was acclaimed worldwide as a musical genius.
Combining the influences of gospel, jazz, blues and country music to invent almost single-handedly what became known as soul. First published to great acclaim in 1978, Brother Ray soon attained classic status. In an inimitable and unsparing voice, Charles tells his whole story, from the chronicle of his musical development to his heroin ad
