Posted June 08, 2015

The City of Laurel has renamed one of their main roads after an opera singer.
City council approved the change and Beacon Street is now Leontyne Price Boulevard. The street is named after a Laurel native who is known to be one of the first African-Americans to gain international acclaim as a professional opera singer.
