Jacko street nam­ing axed

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - 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.
