For fans, friends and family of the late Selena Quintanillia, November 3rd will be a day they will remember forever. This will be the day the "Dreaming of You" singer will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. On top of that, the city of Los Angeles has declared Nov. 3 to be Selena Day.
The late Tejano music icon’s family is scheduled to gather for the dedication ceremony, together with actress Eva Longoria and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who will proclaim the date “Selena Day.”
The ceremony will take place at 6:30 pm at the site of Quintanilla’s Hollywood star, in front of the Capitol Records building. The Walk of Fame Selection Committee had first announced in 2016 that Selena would be honored with a star.
On Tuesday (Oct. 17), Google premiered an animated Selena Quintanilla Google Doodle, commemorating Quintanilla’s debut solo album Selena, which was released on Oct. 17, 1989. Her final album, the crossover recording "Dreaming of You", was released posthumously on July 18, 1995, and ultimately became her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart.
