Purple Reign on Hollywood Blvd: Prince to Finally Receive Walk of Fame Star

Prince is finally set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a recognition he declined twice during his lifetime before his tragic passing on April 21, 2016.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced on Tuesday, June 25, that the late singer will be honored posthumously as part of the Hollywood Walk of Fame Class of 2025, alongside other notable figures like Nia Long, Misty Copeland, Fantasia, Jane Fonda, and David Beckham.

According to People, Prince had discussed the prospect of a nomination with a Walk of Famer before his death but expressed that he was “not ready” for the honor, as noted by Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez.
