The current Queen of Gospel, legendary artist Pastor Shirley Caesar garners a new milestone, as an honoree in the Hollywood Walk of Fame's just-announced honorees selected for the class of 2016, to receive a star on the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame in the category of Recording, unveiled via www.walkoffame.com (date for star ceremony is pending). The award-winning Gospel trailblazer, who's garnered a career-high 11 GRAMMY® Awards, 18 Dove Awards, 14 Stellar Awards and induction into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, was also recently inducted into the inaugural Stellar Honors Club at the 2015 Stellar Awards. Pastor Caesar will also celebrate another milestone in 2016, marking 50 years in her internationally-renowned career as a solo artist. With over 40 albums including her most recent hit album Good God, Pastor Caesar will soon be releasing more new music, and remains a beloved community leader in her native North Carolina, continuing to pastor at the Mt. Calvary Word of Faith Church in Raleigh, NC and serve the community through her Shirley Caesar Outreach Ministries.

Phil Thornton, eOne Music Vice President and General Manager of Urban Inspirational, says: "Entertainment One Music congratulates Pastor Shirley Caesar on this monumental achievement as an honoree on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for 2016! What a great blessing to be selected for this honor. Pastor Caesar's incomparable style, personality and lifelong dedication to ministry have continued to impact and influence so many fans around the world, and we are thrilled to celebrate her upcoming 50-year anniversary and deliver new music to come."

Pastor Caesar also recently performed in a celebration honoring gospel music's rich history, hosted at the White House. Her performance will air on "The Gospel Tradition: In Performance at the White House," which is scheduled to air on PBS and TV One on Friday June 26th.
