Today We Honor Otis Redding

‘Otis Redding was a recording star who wrote “(Sittin’ on) the Dock of the Bay” and “Respect” (performed by Aretha Franklin). Otis prowess as a businessman led him to form his own label, Jotis records, in 1965. In addition to his many business interests in fields related to music, he was engaged in other business interests in his native state such as real estate, investments, stocks, and bonds. His business acumen meant that Otis knew how to earn and invest his money, unlike some of the other soul artists of the ’60s.’

Today We Honor Samuel L. Jackson

‘Respectfully labeled as one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, Jackson is an undisputed star, demonstrated by the fact that his films have grossed more money in box office sales than any other actor in the history of filmmaking.

Jackson made an indelible mark on American cinema with his portrayal of ‘Jules’, the philosophizing hitman, in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction.”  In addition to unanimous critical acclaim for his performance, he received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actor and won the British Academy of Film and Television Arts award.’ via samuelljackson.com
