Bobby 'KP' Woods sings Ray Charles on Friday 28th September 2018
I come from a Gospel background, and grew up singing in Sunday school songs like 'Yes Jesus Loves Me' and 'He's Got The Whole World In His Hands', so when my uncle introduced me to the music of Ray Charles my parents were not very happy.
I quickly fell in love with the music and started singing those songs with several bands I was working with and began to get attention from the audience and by the age of seventeen I was working all over Europe but living in Germany where in 1978 I actually met Ray Charles my musical hero.
On meeting him I told him how I came to know and love his music via my uncle who was a massive fan. He was very impressed and encouraged me to keep singing straight from the heart because that is where all the lyrical inspiration comes from. After his passing I felt moved to do a tribute to his memory and his music so I have put this show together and wrote a song called 'Still Around' as a huge influential tribute to the great man and I do hope you will all enjoy it.
Sincere thanks for your support with my tribute to one of the greatest musicians ever; the great Ray Charles.
