In an exciting move that marked music history, legendary superstar Ray Charles was joined by the world famous 120-member Voices of Jubilation Gospel Choir of Newark, New Jersey for his first ever Christmas Music Special. They combined their talents in this unprecedented musical showcase not only to entertain but also to spread positive messages to a wide audience. What makes this endeavor so special is that the 12-time Grammy winner Charles had never performed traditional holiday music in a live concert setting. And, of course, Ray Charles brings his own, unique jazz/rhythm and blues interpretation to these traditional holiday favorites.
