Ray Charles : I Got A Woman

Sit down, relax, hit the play button and enjoy this masterpiece !
Almost immediately after signing with Atlantic, Charles scored his first hit singles. "It Should Have Been Me" and "Don't You Know" both made the charts in 1954, but it was "I Got A Woman", composed with band mate Renald Richard, that brought him to national prominence.
The song reached the top of Billboard's R&B singles chart in 1955 and from there until 1959 he would have a series of R&B successes.
Charles was often cited for "using his voice like a saxophone"...
