After years of success as a Grammy Award-winning songwriter, actress, author, and executive producer, Hollywood, will honor Ashanti with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Ashanti will be presented with her star in the category of Recording at 7060 Hollywood Boulevard. Tichina Arnold and Ja Rule will be the guest speakers at the event.
“Ashanti is an award-winning singer, author, actress, and executive producer. She has proven her talent in many different Hollywood industries and is an example for young girls who want to be in the ‘biz,’” said Ana Martinez, a Hollywood Walk of Fame Producer.
In 2002, her self-titled album Ashanti reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 and set SoundScan records as the most albums sold by any debut female artist in the chart’s history, and that record is yet to be broken.
