Selena's star on Hollywood Walk of Fame unveiled

The singer was honored 22 years after her untimely death.

— -- Twenty-two years after her untimely death, Selena finally got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Friday evening.

Selena, whose birth name was Selena Quintanilla, was murdered in 1995 by the president of her fan club. She was only 23.

"I promised myself I wasn't going to cry," Longoria told the crowd. "This star isn’t just for Selena but for all Latinas."

"Selena said the goal isn't to live forever but to create something that will," her sister, Suzette Quintanilla, said. "And I think tonight is a perfect testament of that."

The singer's star comes amid her pop culture resurgence.

Selena was best known for her hit Spanish-language songs such as “Como la Flor” and “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.” Her English-language crossover hit, "Dreaming Of You," was released posthumously and reached No. 22 on the Billboard 100.
