Sheila Raye Charles, daughter of the legendary Ray Charles, will headline the Boston Soul Experience at the Hard Rock Café on Thursday, November 15, 2012. Also performing are Boston-based pop/soul artist Lucia Marie and her dancers; Boston soul/R&B artist Aisling Peartree; and rock soul band Gold Blood and the Associates.
According to producer Nina Pickell of Beyond Intent Music Group, the show will be "a night of music that touches and liberates the soul. You'll hear everything from rockin' soul music with a Motown flair to pop originals, all with the continuity of soul, and completed by Sheila Raye singing her father's classics as well as her own songs. This show is also a celebration of many of our fathers, their passion for music and the influence both have had on our lives."
Sheila Raye began her music career at 19. She has appeared at venues around the world, singing her own music and her own interpretation of her dad’s greatest hits. She has recently published her own deeply moving and inspirational life story "Behind The Shades." Sheila Raye will be sharing parts of her life story and tales of her legendary father during the event.
