Ludacris On Hand To Pay Tribute To Soul Legend Otis Redding

 

Feelings and memories of a better time were aplenty at the Wooddruff Arts Center in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday as some of this era’s most bright and promising talent paid tribute to a man that left an indelible mark on the world with his music.

Artists such as Anthony Hamilton, Estelle, and Grammy-winning rapper, Atlanta’s Ludacris, were on hand to give respect to soul music titan Otis Redding.

Estelle sang Redding’s classic, “Satisfaction,” a Rolling Stones original that became one of Redding’s trademark songs.

Children Dexter and Otis III were on hand to perform with Anthony Hamilton.

Ludacris was honored by the Big “O” Youth Educational Foundation, a charitable foundation founded in remembrance of Redding’s legacy, for his numerous charitable works.

“I’m just a fan of Otis Redding,” said the rapper. “His legacy will live forever and he has been one of the major influences in who I am. It’s as simple as that.”
