Hundreds of fans turned out to support Shakira on this momentous occasion.

The ceremony shouldn't come as much of a surprise though, since the pop star's mother predicted the event when she was just seven years old."When I was seven years old, I came to Los Angeles for the first time and I remember I was walking along the Walk of Fame and I remember that my mother told me: 'Shaki, one day you're going to have your name embedded here.' I think if someone had heard my mom saying that they would've thought she was hallucinating," Shakira said.

The Columbian musician and dancer became the first Columbian to receive the honor and was lucky number 2,454 to see her name on the Walk of Fame. Shakira dedicated the star to the Latino community, saying "I want to share this with you because of that unbreakable spirit that we Latinos have, that spirit to overcome all our difficulties with a smile. This star is for you."
