Statement from Mayor Emanuel on the Passing of Frankie Knuckles

CHICAGO–(ENEWSPF)–April 1, 2014.

“Today, Chicago says goodbye to one of its most treasured cultural pioneers, Frankie Knuckles, the “Godfather of House Music”. Over his long career Frankie made his way into the ranks of those artists and innovators who came to this city not just to contribute to a musical genre, but to create one themselves. In doing so, he also made his way into the hearts of those who knew him and the many more who followed his work. While the stretch of Jefferson Street between Monroe and Van Buren is officially known as “Frankie Knuckles Way”, all those who are part of the house music genre, no matter where they are from, walk along the path Frankie created. Our thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends, and our thanks for all the good times will always go to Frankie Knuckles.”
