Shakira dedicates new Walk of Fame star to Latino community

Colombian pop star Shakira received a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame during a ceremony in which she was accompanied by her parents.

"When I was seven years old, I came to Los Angeles for the first time and I remember I was walking along the Walk of Fame and I remember that my mother told me: 'Shaki, one day you're going to have your name embedded here.' I think if someone had heard my mom saying that they would've thought she was hallucinating," the 34-year-old singer-songwriter said.

Shakira, who on Tuesday became the first Colombian to receive the five-pointed terrazzo and brass star on the Walk of Fame and the 2,454th celebrity recognized overall, dedicated the honor to all of her fans and supporters and the Hispanic community in the United States in particular.

"I want to share this with you because of that unbreakable spirit that we Latinos have, that spirit to overcome all our difficulties with a smile. This star is for you. I think we all come into the world with a star, with a talent and a gift and then our dreams are born," she said.

The singer, who got her start in music at the age of 13, gained international stardom in 1996 with the release of her "Pies Descalzos" album. Her fame then continued to grow with the success of the 1998 album "¿Donde estan los ladrones?" and her English-language debut, "Laundry Service," in 2001. source
