    Upon the legacy of a legend
    from the poorest to the richies
    of heart passed the stup of
    fame yet the beauty was seen
    inside the tunes of music
    and one of the greatest written
    compose'd and displayed
    sweet sweet Georgia on my mind
    giving eyez to see the lyrical beat
    of jazz mixed with soul & blues
    filled the room as u take flight
    home on a journey we shall miss
    the glory of ya smile and the million
    of miles u passed on upon the people
    the enlightmet pleasure to treasure
    forever bye bye Ray Ray get ya rest
    we are the world love'd u , surely GOD
    loved u best u made the transistion
    to be glorified in the gates of heaven
    ya Rhythm was ruthless to souls
    da blues of tunes song was da joy
    pose'd inside as the piano tap tap
    the starz u gave us from ya 9th birthday
    and leave upon the world ya 73 years of
    bouncing smiles bye bye Ray Ray
    in HONORS of a LEGEND & LEGACY
    RAY :spinn: CHARLES :look:

    This touched my heart, surely he was well loved by millions and millions of people. Where I'm from there will be no delivery of mail friday because of Regan. I wonder what will be done in honor of my black brother? oh $$RICH$$ I feels like sanging...

    *singing*
    You know I'm hooked on you baby...that's why you sling your weight around,
    I bring you home all my money, except the little I keep for expense, and when I get home to you baby, you tell me "RAY", you ain't got no sense...but on the other hand baby...your loving eases all my pain, and when you put your loving arms around me mama...you make old "RAY" forget about everything.
    *sighing*

    What a legend he was. The song that comes to mind when I think of him is Unchain My Heart, but there are so many others. Touching dedication to Ray Charles.

    as he lost sight in 1987 never stop the beauty of what his inner

    he took it to new high and reached is milestone of life yes what
    will they do to HONOR our dearest Brutha RAY !

    $$RICH$$...
    After the friday nite poetry, is it possible that some of his songs be played? I would really like that. If need be, I will bring a few to the table.

    I think "Georgia on my mind" was one of his biggest hits. My favorite one is "But on the other hand" ...*smh* and *sighing* ...
    Oh yeah...another favorite is..."Till I can't take it any more"
