Just days after Google paid tribute to the life of the Queen of Tejano with a heartwarming doodle, the late singer is posthumously receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Eva Longoria, an actor who also credits Selena as one of the great motivators in her life and career, will also be on hand for the "Selena Day" celebration, along with several members of the late singer's family, according to E!

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and actress and Texas native Eva Longoria will be on hand to proclaim November 3rd as official "Selena Day" in Los Angeles.

The ceremony will take place at 6:30 pm at the site of Quintanilla's Hollywood star, in front of the Capitol Records building.

Meruelo Media, which owns Los Angeles Spanish-language television station KWHY-TV, is the sponsor of the Selena Quintanilla Hollywood Walk of Fame Star. The Walk of Fame Selection Committee had first announced in 2016 that Selena would be honored with a star. Her popularity exploded after she won the Female Vocalist of the Year in the 1986 Tejano Music Awards - a feat she would repeat nine consecutive years. She was breaking into the English-speaking music charts. Suzette Quntanilla, Selena's sister, will be there to accept the honor. To this day her legacy still inspires millions of fans.

Selena was shot to death in 1995 at the age of 23.
