Emilio and Gloria Estefan will be honored by the Las Vegas Walk of Stars at a dedication ceremony on Apr. 29 at 5:00 p.m. in the Crown Theater at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. The ceremony is open to the public.

The star will ultimately be installed in the sidewalk in front of Flamingo Vegas.

Emilio Estefan is a successful music producer, and has collaborated with his wife Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony, Jon Secada, Jennifer Lopez and many others. His resume includes over 30 Grammy nominations and 19 Grammy Awards.

Gloria Estefan has sold more than 90 million records worldwide, has recorded 24 albums and earned five Grammy Awards.

Frank Marino

In this recent, only-tenuously-related photo, Frank Marino of "Divas Las Vegas" at Imperial Palace is also honored with a star.

What’s the Vegas connection? The Las Vegas Walk of Stars organization has specific criteria for those who are honored with a star. “Honorees must have worked or lived in the Greater County of Clark, for periods of considerable regularity. Honorees must have, by their presence in this area, contributed to the charm, worldwide prominence and name recognition of Las Vegas…[those considered are] persons who have become prominent in the field of entertainment, and have greatly contributed to the worldwide prominence of Las Vegas.” We’re not sure that answers the question, but we’re a Las Vegas blog, not a Walk of Stars honoree selection committee.
