Following in Shakira‘s footsteps… Thalia will be the next Latina singer to be making a permanent mark in Hollywood in the near future…
The 40-year-old Mexican singer/actress is set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame sometime next year for her career as a recording artist.
During her 30-year career—as a member of the Mexican child group Din Din, a member of the Mexican band Timbiriche and as a solo artist—Thalia has sung in Spanish, English, French, Portuguese and Tagalog. And, she’s sold more than 40 million albums worldwide.
Along with Thalia, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced 23 other honorees who will be given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, including Javier Bardem.
The 43-year-old Spanish actor, who won an Oscar for his role in No Country for Old Men, is being recognized for his work in motion pictures. Bardem, who is set to appear in the next James Bond film, one of only four actors and actresses selected to receive a star this go-round.
No word yet on when Thalia and Bardem will receive their stars.
