Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez will soon have a star with her name on it on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in recognition of her musical career, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the entity that grants that honour, announced Tuesday.
Lopez is scheduled to be one of the artists to be honoured with a star on the walkway in 2012, although those selected to receive stars have five years to set the dates for their star placement ceremonies.
Besides Lopez, Mexican singer Pepe Aguilar is also on the list of those selected to receive a Walk of Fame star, just like his father, actor and singer Antonio Aguilar, dubbed "El Charro de Mexico", did in 2000.
"The committee has selected a fabulous slate of stars to add sparkle and luster to the Hollywood Walk of Fame over the next year, as well as to generate a once-in-a-lifetime Hollywood experience for many of the visitors who stop by when their favorite personalities are having their stars placed," John Pavlik, chair of the Hollywood Walk of Fame Selection Committee, said in a press release.
Among those on the list of honourees for 2012 are Jennifer Aniston, Vin Diesel, Scarlett Johansson, Kate Winslet, Matt Groening, Mariska Hargitay, Walter Koenig, Adam West and Boyz II Men, and Richard Burton and Barry White are scheduled to receive posthumous stars.
