Selena Quintanilla will finally get her own star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
At a press conference held Tuesday, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce- Hollywood Walk of Fame announced the Queen of Tejano music will be honored with her own star in 2017.
We have one word: YAAAAS!
“The Committee looked carefully at each nominee and we feel that we have selected a great group of talent that will appeal to the tastes of many fans around the world,” stated TV producer Vin Di Bona, chair of the Walk of Fame Selection Committee.
The Hollywood Walk of Fame Class of 2017 also includes Eva Longoria, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ice Cube, John Legend and Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel, among others.
The Quintanilla family shared the good news on Selena’s Facebook fan page Tuesday evening, to which many fans responded: “It’s about time!”
Selena will receive her star more than two decades after her life was cut tragically short on March 31, 1995. Clearly, the honor has been a long time coming.
Regardless, fans couldn’t be more thrilled to know that it’s finally happening. See a few of their reactions below:
