Officials in Detroit announced on Thursday (May 17th) that they will be honoring Michael Jackson by naming a street in his honor. According to Complex, the street will be called Michael Jackson Avenue and will be a re-named portion of a road called Randolph Street that runs through the city’s downtown theater district. Stephen Grady, a spokesman for the city, said, “The Jacksons were among the first groups of black American performers to attain crossover status and went on to release hit after hit after hit.” The re-naming will take place on June 15th to line up with the Detroit Music Weekend outdoor festival, which is set to be headlined by Tito, MarlonJackie and Jermaine Jackson.
