Raymond Myles was the electrifying Gospel Genius of New Orleans. Like a comet shooting across the sky, he was here one minute – brilliant, incandescent and unmistakably unique. And then, just as quickly, he was gone. His life was a complex and colorful journey, propelled by outsized talent, fierce ambition and deeply rooted in the gritty, vibrant city that shaped him. His music amplified the voice of everyday, unseen Black America.
