According to Page Six, a section of Randolph in downtown Detroit will be renamed Michael Avenue during a June 15 ceremony. The announcement came Tuesday, ahead of next month’s Detroit Music Weekend.

Four of Jackson’s brothers, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon are scheduled to perform during the festival. They also will receive a key to the city.

The Gary, Indiana, brothers signed in 1968 with Detroit’s Motown and had hits that included “I Want You Back” and “ABC.”

Michael later would leave Motown and in 1984 recorded “Thriller” which became the best-selling album of all time. He was 50 when he died in 2009 in Los Angeles from a prescription drug overdose.
