Los Angeles, June 22 (IANS/EFE) Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the recording category for her success in the bilingual market.

"The path I have taken from the streets of the Bronx up to this moment on Hollywood Boulevard is paved with love and the support of my family, friends, and the family I've created in my work," Lopez told reporters and the hundreds of fans who gathered for the event Thursday.

"This is a special moment, it's a reference point and it inspires me to work harder and dream higher in everything that comes in the future. I hope you feel, because I do, that it was all worth it," the singer said.

The five-point star with the name of Jennifer Lopez and decorated with a brass disc is the 2,500th star since the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce decided in 1958 to award these honours to outstanding figures in movies, television, radio and music, and to display them on the 14-block-long Walk of Fame where tourists love to have their pictures taken.

Appearing before more than 600 admirers who obtained special passes through the Jennifer Lopez Web site, the singer of Puerto Rican descent blew them kisses and expressed her love.
