Ashanti To Receive Her Flowers With A Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame
The “Foolish” singer will be presented with the 2,718th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard ─ April 7 at 11:30 a.m. PDT in the Category of Recording, a press release detailed.
“Ashanti is an award-winning singer, author, actress, and executive producer,” Ana Martinez, Hollywood Walk of Fame producer, said this week. “She has proven her talent in many different Hollywood industries and is an example for young girls who want to be in the ‘biz.’”
In celebration of the honor, Ashanti posted about her forthcoming star on Wednesday, in a brief Instagram caption. The singer wrote she was left “speechless” by the honor.
Ashanti first entered the scene with her self-titled debut album Ashanti, which earned the No. 1 spot on both the Billboard Top 200 and R&B album charts. Since then, the chart-topper has put out six studio albums and received eight Billboard Awards, one Grammy, two American Music Awards, two Soul Train Awards, six ASCAP Awards and several other esteemed honors.
Ashanti has also made a sizable dent in the world of entertainment, having taken on roles in television series including The Proud Family, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Army Wives, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and American Dreams, as well as films Coach Carter, Resident Evil Extinction, John Tucker Must Die and more.
The unveiling of Ashanti’s star will be live-streamed exclusively on the Walk of Fame website.
