Pop/opera performer Andrea Bocelli graced the streets of Hollywood and became the latest addition to the Hollywood Walk of Fame on March 3. His star is number 2,042 on the Walk of Fame.   Bocelli treated attendees to his talent by singing ‘Time To Say Goodbye’ (‘Con Te Partiro’) with Claire Nordstrom, a soloist with the Adderley School for the Performing Arts in Pacific Palisades   David Foster, credited for discovering Celine Dion, Josh Groban and Michael Bubl’, attended the ceremony and praised the singer during the dedication ceremony. One can visit Bocelli’s star at 7000 Hollywood Boulevard, near Orange Drive.   Nordstrom has been an Adderley student since she was three years old. Currently, she is preparing to play ‘Annie’ in Harvard-Westlake’s school production this spring. She will also play the part of Louise in Adderley School’s production of ‘Gypsy’ in early May.   Nordstrom toured with Bocelli for his winter Christmas special along with several other Adderley students from Pacific Palisades this past holiday season.   The Italian tenor was so taken by the Adderley students’ training and talent that he called Janet Adderley, founder of the performing-arts school in the Highlands Plaza, and asked her to create an Adderley choir to join his walk of Fame ceremony.
