Selena Quintanilla, known to her fans as the "queen of Tejano music", is finally getting her Hollywood star! That ceremony is set for November 3, which will be proclaimed "Selena Day" in the city of Los Angeles.

The singer will receive the 2,622nd star on the walk. "Selena is one of the most influential music icons of the 20th century; her music, style and smile are timeless and now her star will grace our city forever".

She was the first Tejano artist to win a Grammy award and her last record, released after her death, became her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, Billboard said. "Her music stands the test of time". Her 2016 MAC Cosmetics collection literally sold out within minutes of its release and now holds the title as the brand's best-selling collection of all time - and that was 21 years after her 1995 death. The forthcoming star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is just the latest proof that Selena's undying spirit will remain with us forever. On Tuesday, Google paid tribute to her with a doodle. Selena was only 15 when she won female entertainer of the year at the Tejano Music Awards.

Selena has sold more than 65 million records worldwide and her birthday, April 16, is celebrated as "Selena Day" in Texas.
