Ray On My Mind
May 12 @ 8:00 pm
This concert/theatre work brings the music and the story of the great Ray Charles to vivid life! Portraying Ray, master pianist/vocalist Kenny Brawner leads his 11-piece orchestra and three sultry vocalists (a la the Raelettees), performing this American legend’s most popular hits, “What’d I Say?” “I Got a Woman,” “Mess Around,” “Georgia on My Mind,” and a blazing hot duet on “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” and many more! The music is interwoven with monologues depicting how gospel, blues, jazz, and country influenced Ray’s style, while also reflecting on American social history, his epic battle with drugs, and his triumphant return home to Georgia.
