Jacko street nam­ing axed

The Daily Examiner - - WORLD -

AN hon­orary street nam­ing in Detroit for the King of Pop was can­celled Wed­nes­day. Michael Jackson Av­enue was sup­posed to be of­fi­cially un­veiled on Fri­day, just as the late artist’s sur­viv­ing broth­ers pre­pared to per­form at a week­end con­cert.

But the cer­e­mony was called off, as mem­bers of the Jackson 5 – the fam­ily act where Michael Jackson got his start – won­dered why the en­tire group wasn’t be­ing hon­oured.

Un­der city rules, hon­orary street names can­not be granted to groups or or­gan­i­sa­tions, only per­sons.
