Rest in Power ~ Mr. Voodoo Ray !

Rest in Power ~ Mr. Voodoo Ray 

"Raymond Ultarte aka Boogie Ray, aka Mr. Voodoo Ray, born April 18th, 1967 had established himself as one of the biggest influencers of New York City nightlife. 

For decades, Voodoo Ray produced and promoted some of the best events in New York and other cities around the globe. Most recently, he partnered on the weekly Toca Tuesdays and Funkbox events. Voodoo Ray also played an integral part in the creation and production of The Funky Lil Tea Party, Love Is Love Showcase, the Boogieland Central Dance Showcase, Feel Good, The R&B Affairs and many others. He was passionate about music, art and dance, and consistently called upon his enormous catalog of artist friends to showcase during his events.

Voodoo Ray choreographed and/or appeared as a featured dancer for some of the biggest musicians in the world, including the likes of JAY-Z (“Sunshine”), MC Lyte (“Ice Cream Dream”), Run-DMC (“It’s Like That”), Mariah Carey (“Honey,” “The Roof”), Wyclef Jean (“Trying to Stay Alive,” “Pussycat”), Backstreet Boys (“Larger Than Life”), Black Moon (“Two Turntables & a Mic”), Bounty Killer (“It’s a Party”), Rah Digga (“Party and Bullshit”), Nikki D (“Wasted”), Busta Rhymes (“Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See”), Cuban Link (“Scandalous”), Doug E. Fresh (“Busting Out”), Monie Love (“Born 2 B.R.E.E.D.”) and many more." ~gofundmepage
