Ray Charles. The name alone carries enough power to elicit respect from music enthusiasts worldwide. The soul singer, who had been blind since age seven, was widely referenced as "The Genius" in light of his incredible musical abilities and creations. While Charles was most known for his soulful and jazzy classic, he was also a fan of incorporating other sounds into his compilations, country being one in particular.
As he made his appreciation for country music known, Charles recorded an emotional ballad called "Seven Spanish Angels" with country music outlaw Willie Nelson. Capturing the tragedy of death, the melody enhances the idea of undying love in this life, as well as the next. The song was not only Charles' most successful song of a whopping eight country hits, but it also showcased a velvety blend of two voices that, although so different, shared the same desire to tell an emotional story.
Perhaps the most emotional performance of this devastating ballad occurred at a ravishing event where the two icons shared a piano and brought the venue close to tears. Between the gorgeous melody of the piano and the raw emotion exuded by these two performers, heart ache was inevitable.
Despite the heartbreaking loss of the soul singer hailed a god, Charles' legacy continues to live on in sensational songs such as this one.
