If you are a huge Mariah Carey fan, then today may be one of the happiest days of your life. Why? Because Mariah Carey is finally receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s shocking that she hasn’t been honored already considering that she is such a legend, but the pop diva will be receiving the 2,556th star. The ceremony will be held on August 5 with guest speakers Lee Daniels, Brett Rainer, and longtime collaborator as well as CEO of Epic Records L.A. Reid.

Carey is one of the most successful artist of all time, with 18 number one hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100, placing her behind The Beatles, along with having an overall of 63 million albums sold worldwide, making her the third best selling artist in the United States.

Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Ana Martinez, stated, “Finally, all questions regarding when Mariah Carey will be honored with a star are answered! Fans have repeatedly asked us when their favorite singer would be honored, and now is the time. We are thrilled that we can add one of the world’s biggest talents to our Walk of Fame.”

Congrats, Mariah! This honor is overdue, but we are glad that you are getting the award that you deserve.
