Sheila Raye Charles, daughter of the late, great Ray Charles, will give a free concert at 7 p.m. tonight at the Salvation Army Temple Corps, 2090 N. Druid Hills Road NE.
She will share her personal story of overcoming adversity through the power of prayer. At a recent performance in Omaha, she discussed her past struggles with drug abuse, KVNO News reported. She also talked about wishing her father had been around more.
“I love my father with my whole heart. I just wish I could have gotten more of him,” she told the audience there.
Charles has recorded an album called “Behind the Shades.” Her repertoire includes renditions of her father’s famous hits including “Hit the Road Jack” and “Georgia On My Mind.”
Major Roni Robbins of The Salvation Army Atlanta Temple Corps calls her visit “an invaluable blessing.”
