Ricky Martin on Feb. 3 will unveil his star on Puerto Rico's Walk of Fame in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where actor Jose Ferrer and actresses Roselyn Sánchez and Míriam Cólon and singer Chayanne have already been honored.
The main manager of the San Juan location, Santiago Villar, made the announcement on Wednesday in a press release, saying that the event is aimed at "paying tribute to those figures who have made the name of our land known."
"We're very happy that Ricky Martin provides continuity to this project," Villar said, "to complete our aim for the first phase ... of presenting 40 stars."
The singer of "Perdoname," who will perform at the Coliseum in San Juan from Feb. 12-14 as part of his One World tour, has confirmed his attendance at the ceremony.
Martin is the Puerto Rican artist who is the most widely known internationally.
The former member of the boy band Menudo in the 1980s has won numerous prestigious awards, including several Grammys, and has set album sales records, all while participating in important television and theater productions.
San Juan's Walk of Fame is a new cultural and tourist attraction that acknowledges the work of figures from the arts and sports worlds.
