Philadelphia Names Street After Patti LaBelle But Spells Her Name Wrong
What happened to spellcheck?
When the city of Philadelphia decided to honor one of its own musical legends, officials apparently never double checked their spelling.
The city's Streets Department honored singer Patti LaBelle by naming a stretch of Broad Street between Locust and Spruce streets after her.
Trouble is, her name was spelled wrong. The "B" in her last name was not capitalized, the AP reported.
However, at the unveiling ceremony, LaBelle etched her signature onto a correctly spelled version of the sign.
"I was a shy little girl from West Philly. To go from shy Patti to Patti LaBelle Way is incredible," the 75-year-old said of her special honor.
A city spokesperson said the team is aware of the mistake and will install signs with the proper spelling next week.
