Just how did the Reddings get these kids so excited? Well…. I have a few ideas that illustrate just exactly how they did it.
First of all, we are talking about the Otis Redding family - they have an innate and personal respect for the sacred art of songwriting. Otis’s legacy lives on through his surviving family, and let me tell you, they really know what it means to be a songwriter and original artist. The heart and soul of a musician and his or her creation is intensely unique and sacred. The Reddings have a deep understanding of this truth and show profound respect for the gift song.
As you can see, the formula of success that the Redding family has set forth for these young musicians is quite thorough. The legacy that Macon has for great music is thriving strong through Otis Redding’s family, and the talent that they are encouraging is thriving right here in our home town!!
Cheers and love,
