Its a long story.... here it goes. When Ray was 7, He went to the lake with his 5 year old brother. They were specifically told not to go in the lake, but his brother went in. When his brother got in, he got stuck in a quicksand pond. His brother didnt know anything about drowning, or death. He thought it was fun, and was smiling and he asked ray to join in, but ray knew not to. As his brother slowly went down, he was still smiling, his eyes were happy and gleeful. As he drowned, ray froze in fear. His eyes suddenley went funny, and he went blind.(when he was alive) he always wore sunglasses because his eyes were all wonky and funny. And that is how he went blind.And please do not trust me on this story, because, at my school, kalamunda primary, the music teacher MR KAN (i dont know how to spell it) told us that exact story. I dont really believe it but, he told all the classes he taught. maybe he is just a liar

This answer is not exactly correct, but it's a good story! Ray Charles was about 5 when his younger brother died. His brother died by drowning in a portable laundry tub. At the age of 7 he went blind by, supposedly, untreated glaucoma.
