Woodlawn Cemetery (MI)

The center of the R&B universe as far as celebrity graves go. Woodlawn contains a who’s who of legendary musicians from Hitsville USA’s golden age. Add in some automotive icons and civil rights heroes and this is a must-see for anyone interested in grave finding. I really enjoyed visiting this important cemetery. I’d give it Three out of Four Tops.
