Introduced by California Congresswoman Karen Bass, HR 1496 would require the South LA facility to be referred to by that specific designation in any “law, map, regulation, document, paper, or other record of the United States”.

Best known for soul classics such as “What’s Going On?”, “I Heard It Through The Grapevine”, and “Sexual Healing”, Gaye was known for his soulful and socially conscious music before he was killed in 1984 during a domestic dispute with his father.
