Georgia On My Mind: Celebrating the Music of Ray Charles

Celebrate the legendary music of Ray Charles at the Van Wezel with Emmy Award® winner Clint Holmes, 10-time Grammy Award®-winning band Take 6, six-time Grammy® nominee and Downbeat vocalist of the year Nnenna Freelon and sax phenom Kirk Whalum. This 90-minute feel-good extravaganza includes dazzling soulful performances of hit songs including “Hit The Road Jack,” “What'd I Say,” “I Got a Woman,” “I Can't Stop Loving You,” “Baby It's Cold Outside,” “Alexander's Ragtime Band,” “Georgia On My Mind” and many more classic hits.

Ray Charles was an American treasure who won every major award from the Georgia Hall of Fame to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, from The Kennedy Center Honors to a Grammy® Lifetime Achievement Award and induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. He transcended racism and cultural upheavals and spread his music based on Gospel, Blues, Jazz and Country around the world. Boasting iconic tunes from the catalogue of the genius from Georgia himself, the artists make each song a winning part of the tapestry that is Ray Charles' music.
