Sheila Raye Charles, the daughter of the legendary Ray Charles creates her own distinct sound while delivering her intensely inspiring message of hope and love.

As a talented singer/songwriter, she has found her voice in acoustic jazz and R & B with lyrics that deliver the personal journey of her own life and her relationship with her legendary father, Ray Charles.

At age 19, with great courage, she defied her father’s wishes and pursued music. Demonstrating her commitment and her talent, her father actually brought her and her band into his studio and personally produced several songs.

Through a series of life changing events, her music career waned as she gathered a lifetime of experiences which, today, give great meaning and countenance to her music.

Today, Charles is called upon to provide skin tingling renditions of her father’s best known songs from America the Beautiful to Hit The Road Jack to Georgia from jazz festivals to embassy parties to clubs and places of worship. As an entertaining and engaging vocalist, Charles is able to inspire her audiences with stories of her life challenges of drug addiction and recovery, of her spiritual journey and personal growth, while at the same time delivering meaty, life giving music.

With the publication of her life story, Behind the Shades, Charles provides insight into her life and her path to God.
