Welcome home Mr. Raymond Harris!
Out of all the types of music Raymond Harris played in his lifetime, he told us his favorite type of music was Gospel. Although his life has taken him on a journey and he achieved great things in his career, is it coincidental that life has taken him back to where he started? 


Raymond wants to start a fundraising tour for mental illness. He is looking for sponsors. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor you can contact: (225) 638-3998 or email jeaniandre727@gmail.com.
