From music, George Clinton, Jr., Ashanti Douglas, Avril Lavigne, Los Huracanes del Norte and Martha Reeves join the Walk of Fame, while Richard Blade is the only honoree from radio. Patti LuPone, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr. and Angelica Vale are among the live performance honorees, and Michael Strahan will be honored in the newest category of sports entertainment.
Hong’s honor comes after Daniel Dae Kim launched a GoFundMe campaign to get the legendary actor, with 672 credits to his name, a star on the Walk of Fame.
The recipients have been chosen by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s Walk of Fame selection panel, which is composed of Walk of Famers.
“The Panel did an amazing job choosing these very talented people,” said radio personality Ellen K, chair of the Walk of Fame selection panel. “We can’t wait to see each honoree’s reaction as they realize that they are becoming a part of Hollywood’s history with the unveiling of their star on the world’s most famous walkway!”
