Ray Charles

After losing her brother in 1968, Dr. Mable John was not ready to put her heart fully into her music. It wasn't until Ray Charles enlisted her to help him find someone to join the Raelettes did she truly get back into music. Charles later got the idea that, instead of trying to find someone else, John should join him and the Raelettes.

John was recruited to help lead the Raelettes both on stage and with other behind the scenes issues, such as contracts.
