A star will be placed on the Hollywood Hall of fame in honor of late bilingual superstar Selena Quintanilla. The first Tejano artist to win a Grammy, Selena, a pioneer for Latin artists crossing over into the mainstream, continues to inspire young Latinas.
The singer of “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” “Dreaming of You” and other hits was murdered by the president of her fan club in 1995, at age 23.
Selena was among the 2017 Hollywood Walk of Fame honorees announced yesterday (June 27) by television producer Vin di Bona, the Walk of Fame Selection Committee Chair, in front of Hollywood’s Fonda Theatre.
Gustavo Dudamel, the Venezuelan conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, will also be honored with a star.
