Jacko street naming axed
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.
