CGiii Comment

Raymond Myles, the electrifying Gospel Genius of New Orleans, was blessed with a voice of astonishing power. He had a showman’s personality to rival Liberace’s. He was a brilliant pianist and choir director. His short, turbulent life was a complex and colorful journey, propelled by outsized talent and fierce ambition, burdened by prejudice and deeply rooted in the vibrant community that shaped him.
