DETROIT, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Martha Reeves has a new title to add to her collection -- Detroit City Councilwoman.

The Motown chartbuster famous for "Heat Wave," "Jimmy Mack" and "Dancing in the Street" was one of four newcomers elected Tuesday by Detroit voters.

Reeves' spokesman issued a news release Wednesday saying she was taking "a day off for rest and to prepare for her civic responsibilities, her live concerts, and promoting her newest album 'Home To You.'"

Reeves also said she would split her time between city business and performing as a solo artist and with the Vandellas.

"Martha thanks all of her fans for their support through the years and she promises to continue to supply them with the very best in every way," the release said.
