Hide Caption Show Caption File

Selena's Hollywood Walk of Fame star is the 2,622nd and is placed right in front of Capitol Records' building - located on Vine Street north of Hollywood Boulevard - where the singer visited often after signing with EMI Latin, USA Today reported.

Thousands of fans showed up to be part of the historic moment.

Suzette Quintanilla, sister to the late musician, also spoke at the ceremony on behalf of her family, sharing some inspirational words from the late honoree herself: "I think Selena said it best, 'The impossible is possible..." Longoria, along with Mayor Eric Garcetti and Selena's family members, announced it would officially be "Selena Day".

"Growing up, there was not a reflection of me anywhere", Longoria said. The Mexican-American crossover star mesmerized the world with her catchy tunes and continues to be an inspiration to many people of all ages. She also hopes that Selena's time "sets the example for all of our youth that's out there".

"Selena said 'The goal isn't to live forever, but to create something that will". The late queen of Tejano music was honored with a posthumous star on the Walk of Fame last night. "I feel like we've crossed different generations." she said.

"I could never have dreamed that one day I would receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame".

Longoria said it "isn't only for Selena, " but it's in commemoration of "every Latina" out there who has had a dream. "I think Selena said it best, 'The impossible is possible.' I'll leave you with this, Selena said, 'The goal isn't to live forever, but to create something that will.' And I think tonight is a ideal testament of that".

Born Selena Quintanilla on April 16, 1971, in Lake Jackson, Texas, Selena was the youngest child in her family. "I'm just saying. She's the best", Magaly Miranda Alvarez tweeted. She blazed the way for all of us and I will be forever grateful to her for not only that but for the pure joy I felt when I got to see her perform.

Quintanilla died on March 31, 1995, after being shot by Yolanda Saldivar, the founder of the Selena fan club. It's a star for a woman still touching millions of people even decades after her death.
