Ray Charles To Be Honoured With US Postage Stamp

Ray Charles was a famous American music composer, singer and piano player.

Charles is known as a music genius, partly because of the way in which his songs crossed genres.

He blazed a trail in the early days of blues, gospel, country, jazz, soul and rock and roll.

His music was—and still is—inspirational to millions of people around the world.

Charles had many mega-hits. Some of best-known are “Georgia On My Mind,” “Hit the Road Jack,” and “What’d I Say.”

On Monday, the U.S. Postal Service honoured Ray Charles by putting his image on a postage stamp.

The stamp is part of the “Music Icons Forever” series.


Belgium To Issue Chocolate-Flavoured Stamps

People who are sending mail from Belgium will soon have a special treat to add to their package—chocolate-flavoured stamps.

The country’s postal service, BPost, is issuing half a million stamps that smell and taste like chocolate. The glue on the stamp will taste like chocolate. The varnish on the picture will smell like cocoa.

Belgium is a country in western Europe. It’s known for many things, including being host to the headquarters of the European Union.

It’s also known for producing some of the most delicious chocolate in the world.

There will be five chocolate stamp designs that celebrate chocolate in a number of forms including chocolate spread and sprinkles.
