PHILADELPHIA (AP) Philadelphia honored singer Patti LaBelle with her very own street earlier this week. Unfortunately, the signs didnt get her name right.
The citys Streets Department didnt capitalize the b in the legendary soul singers last name on the signs that were put up before Tuesdays ceremony on Broad Street. 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.
