Music – November 25th 1980 – Ray Charles – America The Beautiful -Sung At Duran Vs Leonard Welterwt Title Fite II

For our money at ImaSportsphile…..music legend Ray Charles performs the most inspiring rendition of the song America The Beautiful that has ever been recorded….for it inspired Howard Cosell to say “If that rendition didn’t touch you….if it didn’t send a chill up your spine….I suppose nothing ever will.”…..and all the viewer has to do is watch the demeanor, the countenance, of Sugar Ray Leonard in the backdrop….for Brother Ray inspired his namesake Sugar Ray beyond expectation….as you could see it in his face and body….which went a long way in helping Leonard to go out and embarrass the great Manos de Piedra into declaring for all the world to see….NO MAS  NO MAS…..while it continues to inspires us here at ImaSportsphile every time we play it….and we feel confident it will inspire many of our viewers….IT IS SIMPLY INSPIRATIONAL.
