The great Otis Redding left 4 children: Dexter, Karla, Otis III and Demetria (Dee-Dee) who was adopted after his death.
Otis III made a trip to Paris at the beginning of August and met our french friend JC Morlot (www.soulcorner.com). He learnt there of Isaac Hayes' sudden death and told that he had composed together with David Porter a tune named Sometimes for his next album which was being recorded at Willie Mitchell's Royal studio in Memphis.
Otis III has already done 6 albums, 4 for Epic and 2 for Polygram.
