Tyler Perry Shares Emotional Post After Atlanta Highway Sign Includes His Name

September 3, 2019

Tyler Perry was once homeless and starving on the streets of Atlanta. Now, his success has resulted in a highway sign featuring his name. 

The actor said in a Facebook post that he noticed the signs being changed during his commute to work. 

“My eyes filled with water knowing what God has allowed to happen in my life,” Perry wrote. 

The green highway sign says now refers to an exit for “Tyler Perry Studios.” 

“I was always keeping the faith, knowing that if I worked hard, did my absolute best, kept my integrity, honored every blessing, and remained grateful through it all that everything would work out,” Perry wrote. “And it has, thank God.”
