The ceremony was perfectly timed six days before Brightman’s three concerts line up at the Venice Theater in Las Vegas.
About being awarded a star in the Hall ofame, Brightman said it was a “real honor”. She explained, “Especially since I’m not from America. It’s always nice when another country notices what I’ve done and wants to show their appreciation for it.”
