Portraying Ray, master pianist/vocalist, Samuel Warren leads his three sultry vocalists (a la the Raelettees), performing this American legend's most popular hits in a Ray Charles Tribute show at the Fuhrmann Auditorium as part of Covington's OnSTAGE Series. In an article from NOLA.com by Sarah Bonnett, Samuel talks about the show, "The first half of the show is like you're at Ray Charles' band rehearsal. I got a chance to do some songs; he didn't need background music. The second half will be the concert. What the Spirit has allowed me to do, in trying to do Ray Charles, the way I have lined up the songs, it's almost like I'm telling a story," Warren added. "My prayer has always been that I represent Ray Charles the best way I can."
