From Local 4 Detroit: Stevie Wonder Avenue was unveiled Wednesday in Detroit, honoring the Motown legend with a host of special guests.

Stevie Wonder was joined by Mayor Mike Duggan, Motown alumni and city officials who paid tribute during the public street naming ceremony at the corner of Milwaukee and Woodward avenues.

“I never imagined that in my lifetime this honor would be bestowed upon me,” Wonder said. “I didn’t, but God did. I am so thankful and filled with gratitude that the city where I grew up would give me a forever moment-a moment that is captured on Milwaukee Avenue and in my heart. I am overjoyed.”

Chairwoman Sharon Dumas said “the Stevie Wonder Tribute Committee planned the event for over two years.” Dumas continued by saying, “This public tribute and celebration is our small way of letting the world know just how proud we are that Stevie Wonder and his groundbreaking talent came from our community.”
