On Saturday, August 11, the Hollywood Walk of Fame will be dedicated to the memory of John Travolta.
“Hollywood has lost a true icon,” said the Rev. Dr. James Gilliland, a prominent Hollywood civil rights leader and professor emeritus at Loyola University Maryland.
“It’s like the last movie star, he died for his community, his country and the world.”
In 2017, Travolts father died when the plane he was flying in crashed in the South Pacific.
“My father was a very, very brave man, a fighter, a good fighter,” Traviolts son said.
“But he was also an American, and I think we’re so grateful to him that he had the courage to say, ‘No, I’m not going to be a fighter for my country anymore.'”
The memorial will be at the corner of 19th and Bancroft streets in Hollywood.
A public service will be held in the honor of Travo’s memory on Sunday.
The Walk of FAME is a group of people dedicated to honoring people who have given so much to the community, including celebrities, politicians, teachers, athletes, and others.
In 2017 the Walk of fame received a huge boost when former President Barack Obama’s daughters Malia and Sasha joined the Walk to remember their grandfather.
This year’s tribute will be one of the largest in history.
Travolettes death was mourned across the country, including in New York City, where Travie’s widow, Mary, was in tears as she recalled the late actor’s love of music.
“He loved singing.
He loved dancing.
He was the happiest man in the world,” Mary Travolo told the New York Post.
“And I don’t think anybody could do that.”
The Walk is expected to draw thousands of people.
It is a memorial that celebrates the life of a man who had the greatest influence on so many generations of Americans, and his legacy is being remembered with love, compassion and dignity.
“I want you to be there when John Tavolta is there.
He’s not only a legend, he’s a legend in the heart of our city.
He’ll be there on Friday, so make sure you come.”
