Ray Charles by Richard E. Aaron

Ray Charles. This is in Richmond, Virginia and this was one show that I went to that I had no idea he was headlining. I had a friend who was in the opening band and I flew down to Richmond to see his show and his hang out. The show started, my friends on stage and the show ended, I’m packing up my equipment, I’m in the pit and I start walking out and the announcer comes out and says ladies and gentleman are you ready let’s hear it for Ray Charles… and I’m like okay, I’m going back to the pit! I’m the only one shooting the show, I had full access, and Ray come on and I just shot the whole show, this was a treat, an unexpected treat.
