Statue for James Brown 72nd Birthday



James Brown has got an honor from people of Augusta, who at his 72nd birthday gave him a life-sized bronze statue of himself

Legend singer James Brown was born in South Carolina, but grew up in Augusta. So, it's understandable that the poeple there want to show their appreciation to him, mainly for his musical accomplishments.

Hence, as a way to show their respect and gratitude, those people gave a life-sized bronze statue of the Godfather of Soul himself in middle age, smiling broadly and wearing a cape, presented at a Friday ceremony downtown attended by hundreds to mark Brown 72nd birthday.

Commenting on the given statue, Mayor Bob Young commented "All of Augusta should be proud of the professional accomplishments of James Brown. He is truly an icon in his profession." To notice, funds for the $40,000 statue came from private donors and the city's downtown development authority.
