Legendary singer and Philadelphia native Patti LaBelle will be recognized during the Wawa Welcome America Festival on July 2nd with a street renamed in her honor. A portion of Broad St and Spruce St along the Avenue of the Arts will be renamed Patti LaBelle Way. The ceremony will be held at 4 p.m. and will be broadcast live on NBC10. "We're excited to celebrate the indelible mark that Patti LaBelle has left on the City of Philadelphia, the performing arts community and future generations of artists that our City will produce with the street renaming in her honor," said Michael DelBene, CEO of Welcome America, Inc. "Patti LaBelle is a true trailblazer with a never fading passion for Philadelphia and its traditions and I'm humbled for us, as a City, to play a small part in commemorating her legacy, in such a lasting way."
