In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the classic song “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” by legend Otis Redding, we are honored to have joined forces with the Otis Redding Foundation and Princess Cruises to bring you this special Song Around The World version. Featuring artists Jack Johnson, Corinne Bailey Rae, Aloe Blacc, Otis Redding III, Dexter Redding, Otis Redding Foundation Students, and more; this video takes you from the San Francisco Bay to the streets of Barcelona to the seas of Jamaica and beyond.

“We are so thrilled to get to share the fruits of this partnership with the world,” says Zelma Redding, president of the Otis Redding Foundation and widow of Otis Redding. “This was such a wonderful way to celebrate 50 years of ‘(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,’ and certainly an appropriate and heartwarming way to honor and remember the legacy of my husband.”

We invite you to get lost in this song and let it carry you away to a state of peace.

Proceeds from this video will benefit the Otis Redding Foundation and the Playing For Change Foundation. Both organizations support youth empowerment through music education.
