Ray Charles is an American music legend. A multiple Grammy Award-winning composer, pianist, and singer with an inimitable vocal style and a long catalog of hits, Ray Charles's music is loved by fans around the world. Now his eldest son, Ray Charles Robinson Jr., shares an intimate glimpse of the man behind the music, with never-before-told stories. Going beyond the fame, the concerts, and the tours, Ray Jr. opens the doors of his family home and reveals their private lives with fondness and frankness. Heshares his father's grief and guilt over his little brother's death at the age of five, as well of moments of personal joy. He tells of how Ray overcame the challenges of being blind, writes honestly about the addiction that nearly destroyed his father'slife, and paints a compassionate portrait of his resilient mother Della.--From publisher description.
