The story of the life and career of the legendary rhythm and blues musician Ray Charles, from his humble beginnings in the South, where he went blind at age seven, to his meteoric rise to stardom during the 1950s and 1960s.
Jamie Foxx had to wear eye prosthetics that really did make him blind for up to 14 hours a day during shooting.
Always remember your promise to me. Never let nobody or nothing turn you into no cripple.
During a montage of the band traveling in the 1950s, modern TTX railcars can be seen crossing a bridge over the road.
The final shot of the movie contains a freeze frame of the real Ray Charles and underneath it reads the caption: "Ray Charles Robinson = 1930 - 2004"
