Hal David gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will honor Hal David on Friday, Oct. 14, with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. David’s star — the 2,451st on the Walk of Fame — will be located, appropriately enough, in front of The Musicians Institute at 6752 Hollywood Blvd. In conjunction with the star ceremony, David will also be honored with a musical tribute entitled “Love Sweet Love” in celebration of his 90th birthday (which he celebrated on May 25). The tribute will take place on Oct. 17 at the Mark Taper Forum benefitting The Blue Ribbon of the Music Center and The ASCAP Foundation.

Burt Bacharach, David’s longtime collaborator and friend, took out the attached ad in Daily Variety to congratulate Hal on the honor.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is an internationally-recognized Hollywood icon.

With approximately 24 star ceremonies annually broadcast around the world, the constant reinforcement provided to the public has made the Walk of Fame a top visitor attraction. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce continues to administer the Walk of Fame as the representative of the City of Los Angeles. The Walk of Fame is a tribute to all of those who worked diligently to develop the concept and to maintain this world-class tourist attraction. For more information, visit www.WalkOfFame.com.
