Mariah Carey has become the latest star to appear on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. The event included appearances by record executive LA Reid, and others. Mariah Carey isn’t used to sharing the spotlight with anyone. However, the “Fantasy” singer had to accept a co-starring role on Wednesday, when her 4-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe (aka Roc and Roe), took center stage as Carey was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The singer released her first album in 1990 – and went on to achieve worldwide fame. Her fans turned out in force to see the plaque unveiled, as Ben Bland reports.
