Motown legend Martha Reeves is determined to pepper downtown Detroit with statues of Motown greats if she attains a place on the Michigan city's council.

The HEATWAVE songbird, 64, insists the figurines will boost the city's tourist trade, and honour her devotion to music - and Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson are top of her list to be immortalised.

She says, "Music has been my life, and it will always be my life.

"One of my biggest dreams is to put up statues downtown - statues of Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson. That would be really great."
