Boyle Heights Street Renamed in Honor of Singer Vicente Fernandez


A street east of Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights was renamed Friday after Mexican musician Vicente “Chente” Fernández, who sold more than 50 million albums worldwide and won three Grammy Awards.

“The legacy of Vicente Fernández continues to resonate and inspire people worldwide, making us proud to call ourselves Latino,” Councilman Kevin de León said Aug. 30 after the City Council approved his motion to rename Bailey Street between First Street and Pennsylvania Avenue Vicente Fernández Street.

“Through his music, he has etched his place in history on the hearts of fans who will forever cherish him.”
