AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Long before she passed, Augusta started planning a special ceremony for international opera star and local celebrity Jessye Norman this week.
8th Street in downtown Augusta will be honorarily renamed Friday to Jessye Norman Boulevard to honor the Augusta local for all her accomplishments, and now it will serve in her memory as well.
Friday from 4 until 5 p.m., Greene Street at 8th Street, in front of the Jessye Norman School for the Arts, will be closed to traffic.
The ceremony will begin around 4 p.m.
