Motown songwriters and producers Holland-Dozier-Holland, Jeff Lynne, Mexican band Mana, Ray Parker Jr., Katy Perry, Rick Springfield and Shakur will be awarded stars for recording.
In radio, Renan Almendarez Coello will be the lone honoree.
"We have a great mix of celebrities and industry executives who have made Hollywood what it is today -- one of the greatest entertainment destinations in the world," said David Green, chairman of the Walk of Fame selection committee. "The new selections will bring great joy and fond memories for those millions who visit Hollywood each year!"
Dates for the Walk of Fame ceremonies have not been scheduled. Honorees have up to five years to schedule their ceremonies from date of selection, otherwise they will expire.
