The Telegraph reported recently on the Otis Redding Foundation’s February trip to the White House:

It was the “opportunity of a lifetime,” said Otis Redding Foundation Executive Director Karla Redding-Andrews.

The White House and the Grammy Museum had invited the young performers from the Otis Music Camp to participate in educational events supporting the final “In Performance at the White House” concert of the Obama administration.

“Getting to explore Washington, D.C. is like a dream come true because I’ve always stayed in Macon, Georgia,” Southwest High School sophomore Nadiyah Wilmore said. “It was very overwhelming. And getting into the White House — Oh, my God! — not many people get to do that!”
