He can sing, he can act and he can still melt hearts with his ageless good looks, and today (May 9th), talented musician/actor Rick Springfield earned his place in Hollywood history with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
Springfield was honored in a ceremony Friday afternoon by emcee Leron Gubler, President & CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, plus special guest speakers actor Jason Thompson and singers Richard Marx and Jay DeMarcus. A crowd of fans cheered on as his star was unveiled at 7060 Hollywood Boulevard.
