U.S. Postal Service to honor Ray Charles with limited edition stamp

The United States Postal Service will release a limited edition Forever stamp as tribute to Ray Charles on what would be the late singerâ??s 83rd birthday.

The Ray Charles Forever stamp is the last in the 2013 Music Icon series, which also features Mexican American musician Lydia Mendoza and country music artist Johnny Cash.

The U.S. Postal Service will dedicate the new stamp with two ceremonies on Monday, September 23, in Atlanta at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center at Morehouse College and at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles.

To celebrate the new stamp, a deluxe CD/DVD collection called Ray Charles Forever will be available at major post office locations, as well as online.
