LOS ANGELES (AP) — Grammy-winning Colombian singer Shakira now has a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

During a Tuesday ceremony surrounded by hundreds of screaming, flag-waving fans, Shakira unveiled her sidewalk star in front of the W Hollywood Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard. It's the 2,454th star dedicated along Hollywood's avenue of dreams.

"This is incredible," said the singer and activist. "I would like to thank all of you."

The ceremony for the 34-year-old singer comes on the eve of her Las Vegas honor as the Latin Grammy person of the year.
