Big ‘O’ foundation to host musical tribute

The Big ‘O’ Youth Educational Dream Foundation and the Woodruff Arts Center of Atlanta will host a star-studded musical tribute in honor of the late soul legend Otis Redding.

The event, a fundraiser for the foundation, will take place Nov. 5 at the Woodruff Arts Center and feature performances from Redding’s sons Dexter and Otis Redding III, backed by the Shep Crawford Rhythm Section and the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra.

An awards banquet before the show will honor the charitable efforts of Kyle and Pattie Petty, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin.
