'84 LC Carnegie NMConcert 1984 Carnegie TV NM

The Jornal do Brasil from 8 May 1985 mentions a tv program on Record TV that night, a show taped at Carnegie Hall the year before, where Ray is singing Stella By Starlight, Ruby and What’d I Say.
On 12 November 1984 Ray gave a concert with the New American Orchestra, themed Reach For The Stars, a benefit for the Lenox Hill Hospital, at Carnegie Hall in New York – but there may of course have been one or more other shows at that venue.
Rede Record (Record TV) is Brazil’s second largest television network (currently owned by Bishop Edir Macedo, founder of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God).

Who knows more?
