Shania Twain - Shania Twain Receives Walk Of Fame Honour

Shania Twain received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday (02.06.11).

The 'You're Still The One' singer was awarded the 2,442nd plaque in Los Angeles to commemorate the fact she is the highest selling country music star of all time and claimed it was due to a "small miracle" that she was presented with the accolade.

She said: "I mean, why is a girl from Timmins, Ontario standing here, getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? I really don't know. Where I come from and where I am today - it's a small miracle, to be honest, that I am here today.

"That is the truth of being a star. Our job is to make you happy and entertain you, come thick or thin - and I can tell you that I do that with the greatest of pleasure. Thank you all so much!"

Actress and former model Bo Derek presented Shania with the award, describing her as one of the most "beautiful" people in the world.

She said: "She's one of the most talented, beautiful, beloved people in the world and here we are today and you're getting your star on Hollywood Boulevard."

The 45-year-old Canadian - who had hits with 'Man! I Feel Like A Woman' and 'That Don't Impress Me Much' - was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame earlier this year and Canada's Walk of Fame in 2003.
