On Friday, the “Queen of Tejano music” joined the likes of Anita Baker, Michael Jackson, Louis Armstrong and many more on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Twenty-two years after Selena Quintanilla’s untimely death, the city of Los Angeles honored the singer with her own day and the Hollywood star.
Selena’s sister, Suzette, assisted in the creation of the special star and revealed her excitement to be a part of the moment. “They don’t give this honor to everyone, I’m so beyond honored…to be able to participate in the making of it, priceless,” Suzette said.
During the ceremony, the singer’s family and fans watched as the city unveiled the new star. The city’s Mayor said, “While she was taken from us way too early, we now have something permanent that generations after generations can see in the most famous neighborhood anywhere in the world.”
The songstress is among 34 entertainers who received a star this year, CNN reports.
