Selena Gets Star On The Hollywood Walk of Fame

Some 4,500 fans gathered to pay tribute to the late Tejano music queen Selena Quintanilla, who was honored with the 2,622nd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

There were several celebrity guests at the ceremony which included Edward James Olmos and actress Eva Longoria who spoke about Selena. “Selena’s voice was a key that unlocked the hearts and minds of millions. She was a small town girl with a big heart and a smile that radiated and captivated people everywhere. That small town was my hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas. And she was the face I finally saw that looked like mine.”

Selena’s sister Suzette was the last to speak, ending the ceremony with Selena’s own words: “The goal isn’t to live forever, but to create something that will.”

At the end of the ceremony, the family stood together with Selena’s Star as Chris Perez, who was married to Selena, bent down to lay a small bouquet of white roses on his late wife’s star.

It’s great to see Selena finally get her much deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
