Ray: The Movie (Dir. Taylor Hickford, 2004):
Jamie Foxx stars in this biopic of legendary soul and R&B singer Ray Charles. Riding high on a wave of Oscar buzz, Foxx proved himself worthy of all the hype by portraying blind R&B legend Ray Charles in a warts-and-all performance that Charles approved shortly before his death in June 2004. Despite a few dramatic embellishments of actual incidents (such as the suggestion that the accidental drowning of Charles's younger brother caused all the inner demons that Charles would battle into adulthood), the film does a remarkable job of summarizing Charles's strengths as a musical innovator and his weaknesses as a philandering heroin addict who recorded some of his best songs while flying high as a kite. Foxx seems to be channeling Charles himself, and as he did with the life of Ritchie Valens in La Bamba, director Taylor Hackford gets most of the period details absolutely right as he chronicles Ray's rise from "chitlin circuit" performer in the early '50s to his much-deserved elevation to legendary status as one of the all-time great musicians. Foxx expertly lip-syncs to Ray Charles' classic recordings, but you could swear he's the real deal in a film that honors Ray Charles without sanitizing his once-messy life.

Jamie Foxx picked up a Best Actor gong for his efforts as 'The Genius'.

Ray A Gospel Christmas:
Legendary superstar Ray Charles was joined by the world famous 120 member Voices of Jubilation Gospel Choir of Newark New Jersey for his first ever Christmas Special. They combined their talents in this unprecedented musical showcase not only to entertain but also to spread positive messages to a wide audience. What makes this endeavor so special is that the twelve-time grammy winner Charles has never performed traditional holiday music in a live concert setting. And, of course, Ray Charles brings his own, unique, jazz/rhythm and blues interpretation to these traditional holiday favourities.

Tracklist includes: The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire), Little Drummer Boy, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, Silent Night, The First Noel, Hark The Herald Angels Sing, Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer and many more.
