Today, Canada’s Walk of Fame announced its annual inductees who will receive stars along the promenade in Toronto. The list of six includes two recording artists. Burnaby, BC’s Michael Bublé is a name familiar to the current generation. He is a diamond recording artist who has sold millions of albums internationally and won 12 JUNO awards for his adult pop vocal jazz. Lorne Greene was a man of many talents. Besides a prominent radio voice, he acted in big television series like Bonanza and Battlestar Gallactica. Lorne also recorded music. His spoken word country and western piece “Ringo” topped the RPM charts in the 1960s.
Shawn Mendes does not yet qualify for a star (recipients must have been in the limelight for at least 10 years); however, the teen superstar will be receiving the Allan Slaight Honour which recognizes young talent who inspire their generation. Past winners include Nikki Yanofsky, The Weeknd, Carly Rae Jepsen, Drake, and Melanie Fiona.
