We honor Otis Redding on his birthday with one of his signature songs

Though he was born in Georgia, Otis Redding will forever be linked to Wisconsin as he died in Madison in a plane crash at the tender age of 26. While he didn't write "Try A Little Tenderness", he had a huge hit with the song a year before his death. We get another version of the song from Billy Preston, whose birthday was last Friday.
