Video still from the show.

On December 3, 1988 Ray Charles guested in an Antenne 2 Téléthon in Paris (INA ID CPB88015483), entitledChamps Elysées. The show – presented by Michel Drucker, Claude Serillon and Gérard Holtz – was raising funds for children.
Ray performed a beautiful version of If You Go Away (even inserting a one-time “ne me quitte pas” into his lyrics at the end of the song), and All I Ever Need Is You (with the usual sax solo).
