Next time you’re in Detroit, you can take a spin down Aretha Franklin Way. That’s right, put some R.E.S.P.E.C.T on Ms. Franklin’s name.
The Queen of Soul wiped away tears last week as street signage in her honor was unveiled to a crowd of cheering fans.
Aretha Franklin Way runs on Madison between Brush and Witherell. The area is the heart of a district that includes venues such as Music Hall, the Detroit Opera House, the Gem Theatre and the Carr Center.
