Mariah Carey reaches another milestone in her illustrious career. The music legend will be honored with the 2,556th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“Finally, all questions regarding when Mariah Carey will be honored with a star are answered! Fans have repeatedly asked us when their favorite singer would be honored, and now is the time,” Ana Martinez, Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremonies, said in a statement. “We are thrilled that we can add one of the world’s biggest talents to our Walk of Fame.”
Carey will receive the prestigious honor during a special ceremony on August 4, 2015. Several of Carey’s closet friends will speak at the ceremony, including L.A. Reid, Lee Daniels, and Brett Ratner.
According to Martinez, Carey was selected back in 2007, and she “is now able to do the ceremony.”
