“I suppose I’ve always done my share of crying, especially when there’s no other way to contain my feelings.
I know that men ain’t supposed to cry, but I think that’s wrong.
Crying has always been a way for me to get things out which are buried deep, deep down.
When I sing, I often cry. Crying is feeling, and feeling is being human. Oh yes, I cry.”
~ Ray Charles,
Singer-Songwriter, Musician & Composer
