She also shared the joy she felt when she was honored with a star on the walk of fame on the same day.

“One year ago on March 29, I was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a street, that as a child, I’d walk on and read all the names of the stars I admired, never believing one day my name would be on one of those stars,” she wrote. “And one year ago today, I released my fourth album, Halfway to Home.”
