(Gibson) Ray Charles has been honored with a U.S. Postal Service stamp as part of the Music Icons series today, on what would have been the R&B legend's 83rd birthday.

At the same time, a new CD/DVD set called Ray Charles Forever brings together 12 performances from various key shows throughout the years, as well as interview segments taken from the BBC's Live In London and Norman Seeff's The Session Project from 1986 and 1985, respectively.

A special edition of Ray Charles Forever will be sold at U.S. Post Offices, and it features a bonus track, "I Didn't Know What Time It Was."

U.S. Postal Service Chief Marketing Officer Nagisa Manabe says "Ray Charles was a musical genius whose fans spanned the globe. The U.S. Postal Service is delighted to partner with Concord Music Group to announce the release of this new CD featuring the legendary Ray Charles.

This CD, including an exclusive song never before released, serves as a stellar companion to the limited-edition Ray Charles Forever Stamp the Postal Service is issuing September 23, as the latest addition to the Postal Service's music icons series." more on this story
