Beyond the Spotlight: Otis Redding His Family, Music, and Legacy
May 6, 2019 – April 17, 2020
Otis Redding will always be remembered for his music, including his soulful croon (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay and his popular version of Try a Little Tenderness. In the spotlight, he was the “King of Soul,” “Rockhouse Redding,” and “The Big O.” Beyond the stage and recording studio, he was a Georgia native, farmer, philanthropist and devoted family man who valued and drew from his deep roots in the state. His legacy lives on across Georgia and around the world through the work of his wife Zelma, their family, and the Otis Redding Foundation.
