Pharrell Williams to receive Hollywood Walk of Fame star on Thursday

Singer Pharrell Williams will be honored with the 2,537th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, Dec. 4, according to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

The star in the category of Recording will be unveiled at 11:30 am at 6270 Hollywood Boulevard in front of the W Hotel Hollywood.

“We are so happy to pay tribute to Pharrell Williams, one of the nicest and most talented artists in show business,” stated Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies. “His music is known the world over, and we are confident that fans will be ‘happy’ to see his star shine on our Walk of Fame.”

Helping emcee and Hollywood Chamber President/CEO Leron Gubler to unveil the star will be talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

Williams is currently seen on the NBC television hit “The Voice” as one of the three expert judges.

Redefining cool for a new generation, Williams is a creative force who uses music, fashion, and design to express his distinctive style. From his beginnings as a teenage prodigy and multi-instrumentalist in Virginia Beach back in the early ’90s, through enough hits to earn him Billboard’s Producer of the Decade in 2010, to his current status as multi-media superstar, Williams has never stopped creating.

Starting his producing career as one half of The Neptunes with Chad Hugo, Williams has helped create such classics as Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” Robin Thicke’s  “Blurred Lines,” Nelly’s “Hot in Herre,” Jay-Z’s “I Just Wanna Love U (Give it 2 Me),” Britney Spears’s “I’m A Slave 4 U,” and Justin Timberlake’s “Like I Love You.”

With over 100-million copies of his productions sold, Williams’ music sounds like something no one else has thought of just yet.

He’s also created a new way of looking at established stars such as Snoop Dogg, Madonna, and even the Rolling Stones.  Over four albums, Williams and Hugo along with Shae Haley created an unpredictable hybrid as part of the alt-rock/hip-hop group N.E.R.D.

The music industry has honored Pharrell with seven Grammy Awards including 2004’s and 2014’s “Producer of the Year” as well as ASCAP’s prestigious Golden Note Award in 2012. He received a 2014 Academy Award Nomination for his original song “Happy” which was featured in the animated film “Despicable Me 2.”

The popular song “Happy” remained atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart for ten consecutive weeks, and peaked at No. 1 on iTunes in 103 markets worldwide. The song is the lead single off of his new album “G I R L.” Pharrell’s latest solo album “G I R L” was released on March 3, 2014 to rave reviews.

With his latest venture i am OTHER — a multi-media creative collective that serves as an umbrella for all his endeavors, including Billionaire Boys Club & ICECREAM apparel textile company Bionic Yarn and a dedicated YouTube channel — Williams’ vision continues to push pop culture forward. Williams’ prolific body of work extends beyond the world of music. His diverse artistic creations range from designing a sculpture with prolific contemporary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, to accessories and jewelry for Louis Vuitton, to T-shirts for Japanese mega-brand Uniqlo, to adidas sportswear, and to the forthcoming perfume collaboration with Comme des Garçons.

Pharrell’s work in the humanitarian field is an extension of his success. In 2008, he founded From One Hand To AnOTHER (FOHTA), a foundation focused on supporting the Pharrell Williams Resource Centers’ learning programs for underserved youth in at risk communities across the nation.

This past March, Pharrell partnered with the United Nations Foundation to celebrate the International Day of Happiness inspiring individuals all over the globe to demonstrate their unique “happy.”
