Lin-Manuel Miranda arrives at the Tony Awards at the Beacon Theatre on June 12, 2016, in New York City.

Lin-Manuel Miranda will be honored in Puerto Rico with his very own star in the island's Walk of Fame. The Hamilton creator and award-winning artist is set to reveal his star on Wednesday, July 27 in the iconic Ashford Avenue.

"For us, it is great news that Lin-Manuel Miranda will join us during this ceremony. He is an international artist who has given Puerto Rico great pride because of his success with Hamilton. It's an honor and much happiness that he has accepted our invitation to be present when we reveal his star," said founder of Puerto Rico's Walk of Fame Santiago Villar in a statement. 

News of his star comes just days after Miranda performed for the last time with Hamilton's original cast on July 10. He also recently dropped the peace and love anthem "Love Make The World Go Round" with Jennifer Lopez which was inspired by Orlando shooting victims; proceeds will benefit the Hispanic Federation's Proyecto Somos Orlando initiative, which pledges to "address the long-term needs for mental health services that are culturally competent and bilingual."

The Puerto Rican superstars have performed their track on television shows like Today and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
