Jon Murdock : Imagine going blind that's crazy I can't even fathom it... It makes me anxious as hell.For him to explain it how he did and maybe not wanting to see again is deep.I could go on with this but just those things alone are very interesting.

China Doll : Awwweee seeing him smile is soooooooo warming.

Donald Fife : Wow. What a great way to embrace what we would call a handicap. Beautiful

Bubba Hazelitt : ray is a legend💯💯💯

lestorhaslam : What a Gentleman.

Dan V : Wow that’s amazing how a blind man only wants to see something for a day and give it back up cause he’s so used to it. When most of us can’t even imagine living like that. To be so comfortable and have the amazing outlook on life this man is inspiring me to be grateful and keep working hard smiling through it all. His imagination is probly on a whole other level , we focus too much on sight but Ray has abandoned his sight and developed his other senses , he can probly tell so much just from the tone of someone’s voice. The crazy part is he would give up his sight again cause his mind is already programmed a certain way

Jamie Kennedy : guys brilliant what a legend

Jack smith : Remarkable talent.

adam hiltz : COCAINE

War Eagle : Dick Cavett was such a great interviewer, because he was genuinely interested in his guests and there was no producer pre-writing dialogue to set guests up for pre-written answers. As for Ray Charles, who doesn't love Ray Charles? He's one of the few artists I will never get tired of hearing.

Black Lightyear : Jesus I can litteraly see jamie foxx moving. He N-A-I-L-E-D the role and totally deserved that oscar. RIP Ray

Tommy Arnold : Gotta be on that H that day ...

Josiah Osborne : I have never seen a person born blind look so happy and content. Ray Charles, ladies and gentlemen. RIP, Ray. We love you
