It's about time. What took the city of Detroit so long to reconize such a famous group, that put Motown on the world map. It took Detroit40+years years to reconnize such a fantastic group of singers. So, to Otis Williams,Eddie Kendricks,Paul Williams,Melvin Franklin and the "Voice" David Ruffin.'I say,it's long overdo".

THESE GROUPS WILL LIVE IN THE MINDS OF MANY OF US FOREVER. DETROIT SHOULD BE SO PROUD TO HAVE PRODUCED SUCH A FANTASTIC SOUND WHICH HAS BEEN APPRECIATED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. AS A YOUNG PERSON I JUST LIVED FOR THIS MUSIC AND NOW THAT I AM FIFTY YEARS OLD I STILL FEEL THE SAME. THE TALENT OF THESE ARTISTS AND THE PURE MAGIC OF THEIR MUSIC WILL NEVER BE MATCHED. WE SHOULD APPLAUD THE DEDICATION OF THOSE ARTISTS STILL TOURING TODAY AND BRINGING THAT SWEET SOUL MUSIC TO OTHER COUNTRIES THAT ARE STILL DESPERATE TO HEAR THEM. THE LEAST DETROIT CAN DO IS NAME STREETS ETC AFTER THEM AND THANK GOD THAT THOSE PEOPLE PUT DETROIT FIRMLY IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE WORLD.
