Ray Charles, Louie Armstrong, Johnny Cash, Stevie Wonder.
Ray Charles- he was blind and poor and was an African American man raised in the South before the civil rights movement
Louie Armstrong- once again grew up in poverty and had to live before the Civil Rights movement.
Johnny Cash- drugs were a major adversity for him.
Stevie Wonder- he can play the piano well and he had to learn how to do it blind.
Beethoven- he had to live with the curse of never being able to hear his best work.
hope this helps
