The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced on Sept. 25, that movie and TV mogul Tyler Perry will officially get his name permanently cemented on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Oct. 1, 2019.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame committee took to Twitter to reveal the actual date of the ceremony to honor the creator of the Madea character, as well as a multiplicity of television shows and movies:

“Actor, director Tyler Perry to be honored with a star on the Walk of Fame On October 1!” the post reads according to The Jasmine Brand.

Perry is part of the Walk of Fame class of 2019 that includes Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), Terrence Howard of “Empire,” comic legend Cedric The Entertainer, and the iconic cartoon characters Alvin And The Chipmunks.

Howard just received his star on Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019. It was the 2,674th star delivered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce at 6200 Hollywood Blvd. in front of El Centro, according to Twitter.

Soon after the announcement was made in June, Perry asked his 4.1 million Instagram followers just how high do they want to go in life.

This honor comes just months after the name “Tyler Perry Studios” was added onto the highway sign about one mile away from his property.

Driving into work today I saw these signs on the highways being changed. My eyes filled with water knowing what God has allowed to happen in my life. Atlanta has truly been the promised land for me. I came here with nothing, lived off Sylvan Road, ended up homeless and starving, but I was always praying and believing. I was always keeping the faith, knowing that if I worked hard, did my absolute best, kept my integrity, honored every blessing, and remained grateful through it all that everything would work out. And it has, thank God. But to all of you looking at my life now, I want to share a scripture/prayer that helped me keep going from St. Mark 9:23-25. It's a simple prayer by a man who had faith, a man who believed, but still had doubts. He said, "LORD I believe but help my unbelief." Even in my darkest times when I wanted to give up, I kept believing, and I asked God to help me to believe past any naysayer, any doubt, and any problem. Just know that it is possible to believe in your dream and still wonder how or when it’s going to happen. Stay the course. Pray, work, believe and repeat. You’ll get there. Just believe for as much as you can, and ask God to help you believe for the rest!
