Philadelphia got Patti LaBelle’s name wrong on honorary street

4 years ago 0 Comments

Philadelphia honored singer Patti LaBelle with her very own street earlier this week. Unfortunately, the signs did not get her name right.

The city’s Streets Department did not capitalize the “b” in the legendary soul singer’s last name on the signs that were put up before a ceremony on Broad Street last Tuesday, July 2. A stretch between Locust and Spruce streets was renamed “Patti Labelle Way” in honor of the Philadelphia native.

City spokeswoman Deana Gamble tells The Philadelphia Inquirer the city is aware of the error and plans to install signs with the correct capitalization next week.

A sign that LaBelle autographed and held during the ceremony had the correct spelling.

She thanked all the fans who came out to the ceremony and reminisced about her parents walking down that very stretch of Broad Street. RGA
