Another Motown Honour For The Late King Of Pop

The late King of Pop is getting his own street name in Motown, which first launched him into superstardom.

A section of Randolph Street in downtown Detroit will be renamed ‘Michael Jackson Avenue’ during a ceremony June 15th.  Four Jackson brothers will be performing at the event. The Jackson family are not from Detroit; they hail from Gary, Indiana.

The announcement came ahead of next month’s Detroit Music Weekend.

Michael later would leave Motown and in 1984 recorded ”Thriller” which became the best-selling album of all time.

He was 50 when he died in 2009 in Los Angeles from a prescription drug overdose.
