Post 3+ Months Ago

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif -- Ray Charles, the Grammy-winning crooner who
blended gospel and blues in such crowd-pleasers as "What'd I Say" and
heartfelt ballads like "Georgia on My Mind," died Thursday, a spokesman
said. He was 73.

Charles died at his Beverly Hills home surrounded by family and friends,
said spokesman Jerry Digney.

Charles last public appearance was alongside Clint Eastwood on April
30, when the city of Los Angeles designated the singer's studios, built
40 years ago in central Los Angeles, as a historic landmark.

Blind by age 7 and an orphan at 15, Charles spent his life shattering any
notion of musical boundaries and defying easy definition.

That's a real bummer... My dad went to see him live about 10 years or so ago, said he was outstanding.
