Ray Charles Memorial

While driving Hwy 90 in North Florida I noticed a small sign advertising a Ray Charles Memorial in this small Florida town. I turned around and went to the city park. In the park was a bronze statue of Ray Charles, in his classic piano playing pose. Turns out this is his hometown.
