Hollywood Chamber to honor Steve Irwin with Walk of Fame Star

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that the late animal activist Steve Irwin will be honored with the 2,635th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, April 26, 2018, at 11:30 a.m. PDT. The posthumous star will be dedicated in the category of Television at 6320 Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Iguana Vintage store.

“People from around the world will always remember the animal whisperer Steve Irwin. He was a joy to be around and entertained all with his love and knowledge of the animal kingdom. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is thrilled to pay tribute to this exceptional man,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.

Helping Emcee Leron Gubler, President & CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to unveil the star will be Wes Mannion, Director of Australia Zoo and Wildlife Warriors. Accepting the star will be the Irwin family.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce which administers the popular star ceremonies encourages people who are unable to attend and fans around the world to watch the event exclusively on www.walkoffame.com.

Stephen Robert Irwin was born on February 22, 1962, in Ferntree Gully is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. His parents moved to Beerwah, Queensland, where they opened the Beerwah Reptile and Fauna Park in 1970.

Irwin grew up loving all wildlife, especially reptiles. He caught his first venomous snake (a Common Brown) at the tender age of six and would often arrive late to school after convincing his mother to pull over so he could rescue a lizard off the road.

By the time he was nine-years-old, Irwin was helping his dad catch small problem crocodiles hanging around boat ramps by jumping on them in the water and wrestling them back into the dinghy. He always had an uncanny sixth sense when it came to wildlife and he spent his life honing that skill.

In the 1980s, Irwin spent months on end living in the most remote areas of far North Queensland catching problem crocodiles. He worked with his dog, Sui, and developed crocodile capture and management techniques that are now utilized with crocodilians around the world.

By 1980, the family wildlife park was called the Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park. This is where Irwin called home and where he worked countless hours with his mate, Wes Mannion caring for the wildlife and maintaining the grounds.

In 1991 Irwin took over managing the wildlife park. A few months later, he met Terri Raines, a visiting tourist. In June 1992, they were married in Eugene, Oregon.

Instead of a honeymoon, the couple embarked on filming a wildlife documentary with John Stainton from the Best Picture Show company. The show was so successful that it turned into a series and “The Crocodile Hunter” was born. The TV series became an internationally broadcast wildlife documentary hit which Irwin co-hosted with wife Terri.

Irwin worked tirelessly to improve and expand the wildlife park. Renaming it Australia Zoo in 1998, Irwin’s vision for the world’s best zoo was coming to fruition. In July 2006, Irwin set out his ten-year business plan for his beloved zoo. Tragically, Irwin passed two months later but he knew in his heart that his conservation work would go on with the help of his family.

On May 5th, Wildlife Warriors around the world will converge on the SLS Hotel – Beverly Hills for the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner, celebrating the life and legacy of the Crocodile Hunter.

Hollywood Chamber to honor *NSYNC with Walk of Fame Star

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that musical band *NSYNC will be honored with the 2,636th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, April 30, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. PDT. The star will be dedicated in the category of Recording at 7080 Hollywood Boulevard near the corner of LaBrea. They join other boy bands at that location including: Backstreet Boys, Boyz II Men, New Kids On the Block, and New Edition.

“*NSYNC fans have been patiently waiting for their favorite group to set a date and we are announcing the date earlier than usual so they can start making plans to visit Hollywood and see *NSYNC” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.

Helping Emcee Leron Gubler, President & CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to unveil the star will be celebrity speaker TBD

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce which administers the popular star ceremonies encourages people who are unable to attend and fans around the world to watch the event exclusively on www.walkoffame.com.

*NSYNC – Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and Justin Timberlake have sold over nearly 30 million records in the U.S. and 42 million more worldwide. The group charted with a dozen singles, conquering Top 40, AC, Dance, Latin, Country and R&B charts. Their gargantuan worldwide “No Strings Attached” arena tour and “PopOdyssey” stadium tour rewrote sales, artistic and technical standards for road shows (when tickets for the first 52 “Strings” dates went on sale, tickets sold out in record times). Later, the stripped down “Celebrity” tour zeroed in on *NSYNC’s musical prowess. The group even refined the definition of a boy band, working with “grown-up” acts like Gloria Estefan, Celine Dion, Phil Collins and Richard Marx.

*NSYNC’s first single “I Want You Back” snatched three long-held records: it hit the singles charts faster than any other new act (after one week) and had the longest Top 10 stay ever for a new group (eight weeks), while they became the fastest newcomer to hit the Top 10 (in three weeks) “I Want You Back” also hit No. 13 on the singles chart, sold a million copies and remained active at radio for half a year. From there, *NSYNC cruised onto the fast track, making history with most every move. Their self-titled debut album ultimately peaked at No. 2 and sold more than 10 million copies stateside; the group was named the No. 3 new act of 1998 by Billboard. Their third single, the ballad “(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You” became *NSYNC’s first top 10 release and a No. 2 at AC radio, Fourth radio-friendly pop single, “I Drive Myself Crazy” followed. At the end of 1998, *NSYNC’s self-titled 18-month-old debut CD was the No. 4 disc of the year in 1999, while they were deemed the No. 2 pop album group/duo.As the new millennium dawned, the group contributed vocals to Gloria Estefan’s “Music of My Heart” which became *NSYNC’s biggest hit to date, peaking at No. 2 on the singles chart and at AC radio.

The release of “No Strings Attached” in April 2000 marked a transition for the group, having inked a new deal with Jive Records the previous Fall. The CD debuted at No. 1 selling one million copies the first day, a record of 2.4 million copies the first week and spent eight consecutive weeks at the summit. The first single, the independence-themed “Bye Bye Bye,” not only resonated with listeners to the tune of No. 4 on the singles chart, but it was nominated for Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards. In an instant, the world’s most popular boy band graduated to the major leagues in terms of artistic achievement. Follow-up single, “It’s Gonna Be Me,” perhaps the group’s definitive dance refrain, at last catapulted *NSYNC to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 2000. Third release, the love ballad “This I Promise You,” written and produced by Richard Marx, displayed an elegance and maturity that made the song a true classic in the group’s catalog and one of the year’s indelible melodies; it was also *NSYNC’s fourth consecutive top 10 hit and their first AC No. 1. The song was also recorded in Spanish as “Yo Te Voy A Amar,” which *NSYNC performed on the Latin Grammy Awards. “No Strings Attached” finished as the best-selling album of the year, while the group was the leading top 40 act and top pop artist/duo of 2000.

The five-time platinum “Celebrity” spawned smashes, “Pop,” “Gone,” and “Girlfriend” featuring hip-hop namesake Nelly. Since going on hiatus in 2002, the guys have embarked on a number of creative independent endeavors, including solo albums, movies, Broadway, television and music production. *NSYNC’s musical legacy includes greatest hits where each song represents a milestone along the magical journey for a young vocal ensemble that set a new standard for pop quality, tenacity and celebrity.

The members of *NSYNC created their own 501c3 foundation Challenge For The Children which raised over $5,000,000 and offered financial support to various children’s charities throughout the United States.
