Georgia on My Mind: Celebrating the Music of Ray Charles

“Tell the story, and honor the Music.” - Original Producer, Larry Rosen

Featuring Emmy Award Winner Clint Holmes, 10-time Grammy and Award Winner and Gospel Music Hall of Famers Take 6, Award-winning vocalist Nnenna Freelon, Stellar and Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum Gospel Choir and more!

Ray Charles, a Georgia native son was an American treasure who won every major honor 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. He transcended racism and cultural upheavals, and spread his music based on Gospel, Blues, Jazz and Country around the world...he was the genius!

Boasting iconic tunes from the catalogue of the genius himself, the artists make each song a winning part of the tapestry that is Ray Charles music. Georgia on My Mind celebrates Ray's music with an all-star cast of award winning performers. Take 6 -- 10 time GRAMMY winning vocal sensation. Their exciting performances defy categorization, and have led to collaborations with Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah, and the Genius, Ray Charles.

Clint Holmes -- Las Vegas based vocal star, has been selling out concert halls around the world... his exciting soulful stylings will bring magic to this enchanted evening. Nnenna Freelon -- six time GRAMMY nominee and Downbeat vocalist of the year, will add her soulful vocal style to the Ray mix. Kirk Whalum -- GRAMMY award winner...hails from Memphis, Tennessee.... Kirk's funky R&B sax sound has been heard hit after hit.

We honor the genius from Georgia - Ray Charles!
