"Many musicians possess elements of genius,
but only one—the great Ray Charles—so completely embodies the term that it’s been bestowed upon him as a nickname."

And just what is soul according to Ray Charles?

As he told Time Magazine in 1968, “It’s a force that can light a room. The force radiates from a sense of selfhood, a sense of knowing where you’ve been and what it means. Soul is a way of life—but it’s always the hard way.”
