Stamp Madness Rolls On! Ray Charles Takes on Modern Art in America

The first leg of Stamp Madness is coming to a close, but we still have one match to go in the first round. Yesterday, Grand Central Station beat out Patriotic Star to move on to the semifinals next week.

Today’s first contestant is extraordinary composer, singer, and pianist Ray Charles, whose unforgettable hits include “Georgia On My Mind” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You.” (The Ray Charles stamp will be released later this year.) He is going up against Modern Art in America: 12 artists, 12 incredible works of art.
