Earlier this month, we lost rock-n-roll legend, Little Richard.
Over the weekend, it was announced that a statue will be built in his honor outside of his childhood home in Macon, Georgia.
Fox5Atlanta reported that the statue will be funded by the Friends of the Little Richard House and Community Foundation of Central Georgia. In addition, the money will be used to create a replica of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The goal is to have the statue erected by December 5th this year – which would have been Little Richard’s 88th birthday. December 5th will also be known as “Little Richard Penniman Day” in Macon, Georgia.
We previously shared that Little Richard will be laid to rest at his alma mater Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama.
