Postal service honors Charles with stamp

– The U.S. Postal Service is planning to add soul singer Ray Charles to its “Music Icons Forever” stamp series.

Postal officials say the agency is releasing a stamp featuring the Albany, Ga., native along with one of the artist’s previously unreleased songs.

Charles, who pioneered the soul and rhythm-and-blues genres, died in 2004.

Events are being planned in Atlanta and Los Angeles to celebrate Charles’ inclusion in the series.

R&B singer Ashanti and the Morehouse College Glee Club performed at the Atlanta school’s Ray Charles Performing Arts Center. And Chaka Khan headlined an event at the Grammy Museum.

The U.S. Postal Service honors music legends each year by featuring them on limited-edition stamps.
