Yesterday the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced that Carey will receive the honor on Wednesday, August 5. It will be the 2,555th star in the series. (...whoa.)
Mariah recently released #1 to Infinity, a collection of her 18 No.1 hits. She's one of the best selling acts of all time for that reason, and holds five GRAMMYs under her belt. Carey is also in the middle of a residency in Vegas, and the shots are to die for.
