Ray Charles makes everything better!!!!
26 March 2019 | by reaganjaggerSee all my reviews

Anytime that Ray Charles appears on a TV show or movie , he elevates it to greatness. Mr Charles has such warmth and humor and plays off the entire cast,but especially Katherine Helmond , magnificently in this episode. He always leaves me smiling!! I have to give this episode a 10++++.
