DETROIT, MI – Don’t expect fame to change Rodriguez, a 70-year-old partially-blind folk singer from Detroit who is the star of a documentary film nominated for an Oscar.

The focus of the “Searching for Sugar Man” film is expected to stay put in a Detroit home in the city’s Woodbridge neighborhood he bought for $50 back in 1976 during a federal government land auction.

That’s the word from Konny Rodriguez, his second wife, who had a daughter with him and has been married to him since 1984.
