Lifelong Alaskan Ray Ward has been a James Brown Impersonator for decades. The 75-year-old has his own 'James Brown Museum' located in a bedroom of his house. Ward took us inside his modest house to see the museum, but basically his entire house is an homage to James Brown and a menagerie of other uber-famous Black entertainers that Ray has crossed paths with in his 50-plus years in the entertainment business. But James Brown is his self-described "Hero!" He recently has had eye surgery which has curtailed his touring for now. But Ray tells me he’s very popular in Russia and Asian countries.
