Selena's Hollywood Walk of Fame star to be unveiled in November

Selena performs at Hemisfair Plaza in San Antonio TX

"The wait is over", according to the official Facebook page of Selena Quintanilla, better known as the Queen of Tejano, who will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Mayor Eric Garcetti and actress Eva Longoria are expected to speak at the unveiling, joined by Selena's family.

The ceremony will take place at 6:30 pm at the site of Quintanilla's Hollywood star, in front of the Capitol Records building. She debuted in the music scene in 1980 as the lead of the family band "Selena y Los Dinos" with her siblings A.B. Quintanilla and Suzette Quintanilla. As a musician, she has always been credited for bringing the Tejano genre to mainstream recognition, earning herself the title of "Queen of Tejano Music". The entertainer, who is scheduled to be posthumously honored during a ceremony on November 3, will be receiving the 2,622nd star on the monumental walkway of celebrities, according to Billboard.

Selena has sold more than 65 million records worldwide and her birthday, April 16, is celebrated as "Selena Day" in Texas. She was breaking into the English-speaking music charts. More than 20 years after her death, Selena will finally be recognized for her contributions to music.

"Selena's fans will be showing love and will be excited to be a part of this magical moment in time honoring my sister that will only happen once", she added.

Just before her death in 1995, Selena completed Dreaming of You.
