Selena Quintanilla

The wait for Selena's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is over, her family announced on Facebook.

The Queen of Tejano music is set to receive a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The unveiling will take place on November 3 and her sister Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga will join Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Leron Gubler for the ceremony, Fox 11 Los Angeles reported.


According to the Hollywood Chamber, the star will be dedicated in the category of "Recording" at 1750 N. Vine Street in front of the historic Capitol Records Building.

Selena, as she was mononymously known throughout her career, rose to fame during the late '80s and '90s as a singer, songwriter, model, and actress. During the 1987 Tejano Music Awards, Selena snagged both the "Best Female Vocalist of the Year" and "Performer of the Year" awards. "Without a doubt Selena's star will be experienced by millions of her loyal fans for years to come!" "Her music stands the test of time". She is recognized for skyrocketing to the top of the male-dominated Tejano music industry with her record-breaking hits, including Bidi, Bidi Bom Bom, Dreaming of You, No Me Queda Mas, Amor Prohibido and Como La Flor.
