Canadian country pop diva Shania Twain was honored with a star on Hollywood’s storied Walk of Fame on Thursday. Twain, who just published her memoirs and launched a new TV show voiced surprise that she had come so far. “I mean, why is a girl from Timmins, Ontario, standing here, getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?” the Grammy-winner asked.
“I really don't know... it’s a small miracle, to be honest, that I am here today.” Twain began singing in bars when she was eight-years-old to help her family make ends meet. She was adopted by her mother’s second husband, Jerry Twain, who legally changed her last names to his.
