Margie Hendricks (surname sometimes spelled Hendrix) was the lead singer of Ray Charles backing group, the Raelets. Ray was a married man at the time, and Margie became his mistress (kept woman). She would even give birth to Ray’s child, a son. But there’s became a volatile relationship as Ray had a Heroin addiction, and Margie would hit the bottle and soon become addicted to drugs herself. It all came to a head in 1964 after a heated argument between Margie and Ray led to her firing from the Raelets. Despite this setback, Margie plowed ahead continuing to record. However Margie died in 1973, some say of a heroin overdose though there has never been any official confirmation that was the case.
