His soulful melodies and heartfelt songs of joy have been embraced around the world for decades. In this republication of the award-winning biography originally published in 1973, readers learn the rags-to-riches story of Charles? life?from age seven, when he loses his sight completely, to age forty, when he performs to dazzled audiences worldwide and participates in the fight for racial justice.
