The true story of American musical legend Ray Charles.
Ray is born into poverty in rural Georgia and loses his sight at the age of seven, but his adversity, and his determined mother, provide him with the necessary motivation to succeed.
As he revolutionized music with his unique style of infusing gospel, country and jazz into a new sound, Ray had to confront the racial politics of growing up in the South on the cusp of the civil rights movement.
Rated PG-13 for depiction of drug addiction, sexuality and some thematic elements.
Box office gross: $75.2 million. View box office history.
Released by Universal. See more credits.
