The votes are in and the nominees have been chosen for the class of 2017 to receive a star on the coveted Hollywood Walk of Fame. Among the group of entertainment professionals in Motion Pictures, Television, Live Theatre, Radio, and Recording that have been selected to receive stars are two Texas beauties. A legend in her own right and “Queen of Tejano” music as she was lovingly known-Selena Quintanilla, and American actress, producer, director, activist, and businesswoman-Eva Longoria Baston.

Fans took to social media in bliss, as the announcement was made on Tuesday, June 28, 2016, that Selena would be among the nominees selected by the Walk of Fame Selection Committee of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to be honored in 2017, posthumously.

Quintanilla’s untimely death shocked the world on March 31, 1995, as her life was cut short of what we can only imagine would have been many more accolades of award-winning music, movie roles, fashion statements and her community work just to name a few. 22 years later the late singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer is making headlines as the stage is set for her star debut in 2017.

The Quintanilla family released a statement on the Selena Quintanilla official Facebook page stating-“On behalf of the Quintanilla family we would like to send a very special thank you to Selena fans across the world. With your love and support debut, Selena’s legacy continues to shine like a star, making her top trending on Facebook!” Chris Perez, Selena’s husband took to his Facebook page and shared this statement-“I’d like to give a very special THANK YOU to all of you Selena fans out there for pushing for this to happen. She’s getting her star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame!”
