Celebrating the legendary pioneer with a collection of his most memorable songs, the 17-song soundtrack includes such Charles classics as "I've Got A Woman, "Night Time Is) The Right Time," "Georgia On My Mind," Hit The Road Jack," and "Let The Good Times Roll."
According to Warner Music group, Charles was actively involved in the film version of his life and selected three of the six live tracks that appear on the soundtrack: "Hallelujah I Love Her So," "What'd I Say," and "You Don't Know Me," which were taken from a 1964 concert at the fabled Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
The Official Synopsis:
"Ray" is the never-before-told musical biographical drama of American legend Ray Charles. Featuring a remarkable performance from Jamie Foxx in the central role, "Ray" follows the inspiring story of a one-of-kind genius.
Born in a poor town in Georgia, Ray Charles went blind at the age of seven shortly after witnessing his younger brother's accidental death. Inspired by a fiercely independent mother who insisted he make his own way in the world, Charles found his calling and his gift behind a piano keyboard. Touring across the Southern musical circuit, the soulful singer gained a reputation and then exploded with worldwide fame when he pioneered incorporating gospel, country, jazz, and orchestral influences into his inimitable style. As he revolutionized the way people appreciated music, he simultaneously fought segregation in the very clubs that launched him and championed artists' rights within the corporate music business. "Ray" provides an unflinching portrait of Charles' musical genius as he overcomes drug addiction while transforming into one of this country's most beloved performers.
