Ray Charles - I got a Woman (1954)

Ray Charles plays in Nashville, Tennessee (1959)

“I never considered myself part of rock ‘n’ roll. My stuff was more adult. It was more difficult for teenagers to relate to; my stuff was filled with more despair than anything you’d associate with rock ‘n’ roll. Since I couldn’t see people dancing, I didn’t write jitterbugs or twists. I wrote rhythms that moved me. My style required pure heart singing.”

"My version of "Georgia" became the state song of  Georgia. That was a big thing for me, man. It really touched me. Here is  a state that used to lynch people like me suddenly declaring my version  of a song as its state song. That is touching."
