The Queen of Soul is now king of the road.
Surrounded by fans, the legendary singer had a city street named after her Thursday evening. A section of Madison, between Brush and Witherell, is now known as Aretha Franklin Way.
Franklin, 75, admitted to being a bit emotional about the honor.
“I knew I would get weepy when I got down here,” she said to an audience gathered at the Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts, minutes before the sign reveal.
She thanked the Detroit City Council for the honor, which she called magnificent.
“Every time I come down here, I want to see it,” she said. “I’m gonna dance down it. Thank you.”
