He choice six song of the sound track and he was going to put in the movie soundtrack includes such Charles classics as “I’ve Got A Woman Night time is, the right time, Georgia on my mind, Hit the road Jack, and let the good times row. The reason why he start playing the piano is because his mom told him he should find is own way into the world.

So he went into a traveling band for Sweet Time Records with the head man of the band Lowell Fulson.

In this band they had a bass player, guitar player, drummer and piano. He left that band because of the man who was giving out the money didn’t give his money in ones so he left and then signed to Atlanta Records. Somebody from the record label told him he got to come with his own flavor and that’s when they came with a song called mess around and he put out out the album and that was the number one singe on the record.
