Ray Charles - My Early Years, On QVC (1998)

Ray Charles, according to a QVC press release, "made his first solo performance in 53 years" on 10 March 1998 on the television shopping network to promote the first product from his merchandising and marketing company RCR Productions, a book-and-CD set called Ray Charles - My Early Years. Charles sold the package during a 15-minute segment of QVC on Saturday at 4 pm. Accompanying himself on piano, he performed one of the songs on the recording, which included such hits like Georgia On My Mind, Hit The Road Jack, and I Can't Stop Loving You. Charles told QVC he conceived the project as a book, then "added the music to complement the reading."

Who knows more about the song(s) that Ray performed in the QVC studio?
