PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio/AP) — Philadelphia-area natives Terrence Howard and Alecia Moore, better known to her fans as Pink, will both be honored with stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Walk of Fame selection committee on Monday announced the class of 2019.

Howard's first television role was Jackie Jackson in ABC's "The Jacksons: An American Dream" in 1992. His film debut was 1995's "Mr. Holland's Opus." Since 2015, Howard has starred in the FOX television series "Empire," for which he won a BET Award for best actor. Howard released an R&B album, "Shine Through It," in 2008.

Other honorees in the television category include Alvin and the Chipmunks, Candice Bergen, Guy Fieri, Lucy Liu, Mandy Moore, and Julia Child.

Doylestown native and three-time Grammy Award winner Pink is an honoree in the music category. Pink's 2017 studio album, "Beautiful Trauma," was the third best-selling album of the year. She has been recording music since 1995 and is known for powerful vocals and acrobatic live performances. She is one of the world's best-selling music artists, with more than 40 million albums and 50 million singles sold worldwide. Besides her Grammys she has also won a Brit Award, a Daytime Emmy Award, and seven MTV Video Music Awards.

Other stars of the music industry to be named include Michael Buble, Faith Hill, Dolly Parton, Cypress Hill, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Ronstadt.

Oscar winners Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway are among the newest group of actors to be added.

Idina Menzel, Cedric "The Entertainer," Judith Light and Paul Sorvino were picked for their work in live theater and performance.

No dates have been scheduled for the star ceremonies, which require a sponsor to pay $40,000 to the chamber of commerce's charitable trust.
