Ricky Martin to receive star on Puerto Rican Walk of Fame

Pop star Ricky Martin is set to be honored in his native Puerto Rico with a star on the country's Walk of Fame.

The Livin' La Vida Loca singer will unveil the prestigious marker in his hometown of San Juan on 3 February (16), and he will be just one of the 40 Puerto Rican celebrities local officials plan to honor over the next few years.

"We continue paying homage to those figures that have given name to our land," Walk of Fame of Puerto Rico chairman Santiago Villar says in a statement. "We are really pleased that Ricky Martin can give continuity to this project which, I believe, can continue until we fulfill our objective of the first phase, which consists of the unveiling of 40 stars."

Among those who have already unveiled their stars are singer Chayanne and actors Jose Ferrer, Roselyn Sanchez and Miriam Colon.

Martin will receive the honor days before he kicks off the next leg of his One World tour at the Coliseum in San Juan on 12 February (16).
