COLLEGE PARK, Maryland — On April 30, the boy band *NSYNC will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which will increase the number of Maryland, Virginia and District of Columbia natives with stars on Hollywood Boulevard.

Band members Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and Lance Bass will all be at the unveiling. Chasez was born and raised in Bowie.
The boy band was formed in the mid 1990s, and released four albums during their seven year run. Though the group went on hiatus in 2002, they reunited for a performance at the 2013 Video Music Awards.
And when Chasez earns his star, he’ll be in good company. Many other locals have real estate on the Walk of Fame.
