Another star in joining the Hollywood Walk of Fame next week and it's been a long time coming.
Singer Mariah Carey will get the 2,556th star on the famous walkway, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced on Monday.
“Super excited & feeling so humbled about my star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Carey tweeted on Monday. “Thank you so much to the fans for making this happen for me.”
Carey, who recently launched a residency in Las Vegas, is one of the most successful acts in music. She has 18 No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, sold millions of albums and won a number of awards, including five Grammys.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will host a ceremony on Aug. 5 with guest speakers, directors Lee Daniels and Brett Ratner and Epic Records CEO and longtime Carey collaborator L.A. Reid.
