Many musicians have streets (even airports!) named after them and the latest to enjoy the honour is JACKIE WILSON.

The City of Highland Park in Michigan will rename Cottage Grove Street, “JACKIE WILSON LANE” in a renaming ceremony on Saturday August 26th. Wilson fans will know that the soul pioneer was born and grew up in Highland Park and we’re told that guests at the ceremony will include Mary Wilson, Rance Allen, Joe Billingslea of the Contours, and the Stubbs Girls.

Let’s hope that it’s a beautiful day and that the fans who turn up get the sweetest feeling!!!
