LAS VEGAS (AP) — Singer Jenni Rivera and former Major League Baseball pitcher Esteban Loaiza are each getting a place on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars.

Granite stars recognizing the wife and husband were scheduled to be installed Saturday on the Las Vegas Strip alongside stars dedicated to Dean Martin, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. Stars for Rivera and Loaiza will be located outside the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.

The Mexican power couple was scheduled to attend a ceremony in their honor Friday night at the Eastside Cannery hotel-casino in Las Vegas. Rivera was to give a concert at the casino Saturday to mark her 42nd birthday.

Rivera is the singer of hits “Contraband” and “Guilty or Innocent.”

Loaiza played for several teams during his MLB career, including the Los Angeles Dodgers.
