Otis Ray Redding was an influential American deep soul singer, probably best known for his posthumous hit single, "(Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay." According to the website of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (where he was inducted in 1989), Redding's name is "synonymous with the term soul, music that arose out of the black experience in America through the transmutation of gospel and rhythm & blues into a form of funky, secular testifying."

Redding, his manager, the pilot, and four members of his backup band, The Bar-Kays, were killed when his chartered plane crashed into Lake Monona in Madison, Wisconsin, on December 10, 1967. Redding was 26 years old at the time of his death.
