It will be out with an unreleased song...
Billboard reports that the US Postal Service has plans to add Ray Charles to its "Music Icons Forever" stamp series. They have released a stamp today featuring Charles, along with one of his previously unreleased songs. Charles died in 2004. Events are being planned in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, as well as Los Angles, to celebrate the stamp.
Ashanti and the Morehouse College Glee Club (in Atlanta) will perform at that school's Ray Charles Performing Arts Center. Chaka Khan will perform at the Grammy Museum. The US Postal Service honors music icons every year with limited-edition stamps.
