Angelica Vale is one proud daughter of her mother Angélica María as she was announced one of the celebrities in Hollywood's "Walk of Fame" Class of 2016 list.  "Yay! My mother is finally receiving her star in the Hollywood 'Walk of Fame'! No one deserves it more than you, I love you!," Vale expressed on her Instagram account

Unlike the Class of 2015, which included three Latinos --Eugenio Derbez, Sofia Vergara and Pitbull, the 70-year-old American-born Mexican actress is the only Latina to receive star in 2016.  

Since the 1950's she's released many albums and starred in countless of novelas and films; however, "La Novia de Mexico" will be recognized for her live acting in theater.  Actors Harvey Fierstein and comedian Kevin Hart also form part of that list.

We're also proud of pop singer Bruno Mars for making the list!  Yes, he's not fully Latino, but he is of Puerto Rican descent and that makes us happy! The 29-year-old "Locked Out Of Heaven" singer will receive a star under the music category.  Other celebrities who form part of the "Walk of Fame's" Class of 2016, are:
