Although, this was not his only nickname, he was known as the “Brother Ray” by his family and group of friends.
Ray Charles was blind from the age of seven but being blind did not stop his success or the hard work and endurance it took to obtain it . Ray Charles was married twice, and the father of twelve children with ten different women. It becomes obvious that Ray Charles was his own and biggest influence, yet he cited Nat King Cole as a primary influence, but his music was also influenced by jazz, blues, rhythm and blues, and country artists of the day, including Art Tatum, Louis Jordan, Charles Brown and Louis Armstrong.

Playing chess became a favorite pastime for Ray Charles and being blind he used a special board with raised squares and holes for the pieces. In a 1991 concert, he referred to Willie Nelson as “my chess partner” and in 2002, Charles played and lost to American Grandmaster (chess) and former U.S. Champion Larry Evans.
