Aretha Franklin Way!

There’s a street in Detroit called Shady Lane, and I’m sure many Detroiters thought that street was named after Queen Aretha Franklin. It’s not (I think), but Aretha finally got her own street in her homeland of Detroit last week. Aretha is getting ready to hang up her performin’ wig, and over the weekend, she wailed out music notes during a show, which may have been her last in Detroit, to honor her. To promote the show and to honor the pride of Michigan even more (cut to the Wayne County treasurer’s office throwing a side-eye at “pride of Michigan”), the City of Detroit held a ceremony where they officially named a street after her.

WDIV says that a part of Madison, starting at Brush Street in front of the Detroit City Music Hall for the Performing Arts, has been named Aretha Franklin Way. Aretha got teary as the crowd hailed her during her street name ceremony.

I looked at that part of Madison on Google Street View, and I really hope the city plans to plant a bunch of giant trees along Aretha Franklin Way, because it’s not nearly shady enough. And I bet that right now, Dionne Warwick and Patti LaBelle are fighting over who will get to sit on the other one’s shoulders as they spray paint “Hateretha Way” on that street sign in the middle of the night.
