Michael Jackson Street Renaming Canceled In Detroit

A ceremony in Detroit to rename a street in honor of the late Michael Jackson has been cancelled, according to the Detroit Free Press. Michael Jackson Avenue was scheduled to be unveiled along a stretch of Randolph Street in the city’s theater district. The newspaper reports that Jackson’s siblings originally were under the impression that the entire Jackson 5 group was going to be honored with the street name change as part of Detroit Music Weekend, but the city prohibits ceremonial street designations for groups or organizations. Four of Jackson’s brothers, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon, are still scheduled to perform during the festival. Stephen Grady, Council President Brenda Jones’ chief of staff, says the council still plans “to do something for the Jackson 5.” Copyright(c) 2018 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
