Ray's backup singers were called the Raelettes. Margie Hendricks did the lead for this one and Hit the Road Jack. (Just to be honest, I knew the Raelettes part but had to look up the other.)

If you ever watched the Cosby Show you will never forget when the family lip synched this song for Cliff's parents anniversary (Season 2, episode 3). The best part was when Rudy (Keshia Knight Pulliam) started singing the "baby, baby" part. It was a scream and an unforgettabl e moment for the Cosby Show and Ray Charles music. I am sure there are millions of people who know this song because of that TV episode.
