Forever Ray – pays perfect tribute to the pianist, singer, composer, bandleader, and ground-breaking entertainer endowed with the moniker “the Genius” – Ray Charles. Credited with the early development of soul music, a style based on a melding of gospel, rhythm and blues, and jazz music, Ray Charles’ influence echoes through generations of rock and soul singers.

Forever Ray features Shulton Whitley as the voice of Ray Charles, along with former Raylette, Angela Workman, vocalist Chyna Grant from the Harlem Gospel Choir, and Samantha Joy, who comes by her talent naturally thanks to her father, lead singer Shulton Whitley! They are backed by a multi-talented, musically exacting band which embodies the music of Ray Charles like none other. Forever Ray brings Ray Charles’ timeless hits to life including: “I Got A Woman”, “Hallelujah I Love Her So”, “I Can’t Stop Loving You”, “Georgia on My Mind”, “What I Say”, and “Unchain My Heart”.

Forever Ray consistently performs to sell-out audiences bringing the exciting and uplifting music of Ray Charles, which blends the musical styles of Jazz, Blues, Country and R&B. To see a Forever Ray show is to truly experience the brilliance of Ray Charles.
