Selena and her sister Suzette shared a special bond and since the singer’s passing, Suzette has been behind some of the biggest deals honoring her sister’s legacy. She worked with MAC to deliver an unforgettable makeup collection, she helped provide specific one-of-a-kind details for Selena’s Google Doodle, as she did for Selena’s wax figure at Madame Tussauds. For the latest homage to Selena, Suzette got her hands dirty helping create her sister’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which will be unveiled tonight, November 3, at 6:30p.m. (PST)
When Suzette initially announced the date Selena would be honored with her star, the family released a statement expressing their joy. “This day is finally becoming a reality and we cannot be happier. We are grateful Selena’s life has been an inspiration to so many and we hope it will continue to encourage people to follow their dreams.”
As if this day couldn’t get more special, Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti, has also declared today, November 3, as “Selena Day.”
There’s no doubt that fans will flock to tonight’s ceremony, where Eva Longoria will be the master of ceremony. But one special person has already paid his respects to the dedicated star. Selena’s widower Chris Perez shared a post to his Instagram revealing he already made a special trip to the star and will return for the mass unveiling.
Yup, his caption is giving us ALL the feels.
Moments like these remind us of Selena’s legendary status. It has been 22 years since she died, but her music and spirit will live on forever.
