My childhood idol staring at me occasionally through those magnificent deep blue orbs. How could a moment like this possibly be happening to me? Frank Sinatra doesn't even know who I am, and I'm sitting directly in his line of vision as he's recording a record for posterity, no less, but this is not a dream, and I'll explain..."Another excerpt: Chapter 55: MEETING "Q""Back when I had first met Quincy Jones, he had just become the artist and repertoire man for Mercury Records. We talked about some song material to record..."Born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, Ray has been singing and winning contests from early childhood. As a member of the US Air Force, Ray became the vocalist for the 753rd Air Force Band and was the male vocalist winner of the "Tops in Blue" USAF talent contest.

Have faith that at some point you can achieve the art of excellence, or at least come as close to it as possible."
