This is a special year for Shirley Caesar. She’s not only celebrating her 50th anniversary as a solo artist, but on June 28, she’ll be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Caesar, whose star falls under the Recording category, marks the 2,583rd on the walk of fame. Guest speakers will include Yolanda Adams and Kirk Franklin.
The queen of gospel has recorded over 40 albums and garnered 11 Grammys, 14 Stellar awards, 18 Dove awards and the list goes on.
Known for her legendary talent and ability to remain relevant, her latest release, Fill This House (June 3), includes her lead singles, “It’s Alright, It’s Ok” featuring Anthony Hamilton and “Mother Emanuel.”
If you’re in Cali at the end of June, you can catch the dedication on 6126 Hollywood Boulevard in front of Fonda Theatre. If not, the event will be live-streamed at 11:30 a.m. on walkoffame.com!
