Moore wrote on her Instagram page: “As I look back over my life Harlem /Newark NJ, I am proud. Receiving a Hollywood Star made me reflect on the goodness of God.”
Moore’s star is being conferred under the Live Theatre/Live Performance category. Emmy winner Sheryl Lee Ralph, R&B singer Freda Payne, and comedian Katt Williams are due to take part in the ceremony.
