Music legend Ray Charles will forever remain in the heart of many people, who admire his great contribution to music. Bringing to life public appreciation to him, organizers have detailed plans for the Ray Charles Museum that were officially unveiled on Thursday April 1, 2005, in Los Angeles.
At that time organizers uttered their plan to renovate the three-story, 18,000-square-foot building along Washington Boulevard near downtown that housed Charles original recording studios. Moreover, the museum would house a permanent collection of rotating exhibits paying tribute to Charles' long and storied career and feature an educational center and the working studio-offices of Ray Charles Enterprises.
Additionally, the project supervised by the Ray Charles Museum Foundation, also plans to present an ongoing series of concerts for the community.
