Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at 7:30 PM
Ray Charles, Georgia’s genius native son, was an American treasure. He transcended racism, cultural upheavals, and spread his music—a blend of gospel, blues, jazz and country—around the world. The artists of Georgia On My Mind: Celebrating the Music of Ray Charles spotlight each song as an intricate part of the tapestry that is Charles’ iconic music. Ray won every major award from the Georgia Music Hall of Fame to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, from the Kennedy Honors to a Grammy® Lifetime Achievement Award and induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. This high-octane show celebrates Ray’s music with an all-star cast of award-winning performers.
