Selena: Hollywood Walk Of Fame Ceremony Set For Nov. 3
Nov. 3 is shaping up to be a special day of celebration for Latin music fans.
The late Selena is due to receive a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, right in front of the Capitol Records building located at 1750 Vine Street in Los Angeles. Accepting the star on Selena's behalf will be sister Suzette Quintanilla.
Additionally, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and actress Eva Longoria, joined by the GRAMMY winner's friends and family, will proclaim the date "Selena Day."
The ceremony, which will take place at 6:30 p.m., will stream live at www.walkoffame.com.
"Since day one of Selena's selection into the Walk of Fame, not a day went by that we were not asked by fans when Selena would get her star. This day has come and fans from around the world will rejoice in her well-deserved honor," said Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.
A celebrated Latin music icon, Selena became the first Tejano artist to win a GRAMMY for Best Mexican-American Album, taking the honor for Live at the 36th GRAMMY Awards in 1994. Earlier this week, Google honored the release of Selena's 1989 eponymous debut solo album with a commemorative Google Doodle.
