LOS ANGELES (CNS) — A street east of Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights will be renamed Friday after Mexican musician Vicente 'Chente' Fernández, who sold more than 50 million albums worldwide and won three Grammy Awards and nine Latin Grammys. '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.
