Tragic singer Janis Joplin is to be honored posthumously with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Kris Kristofferson and music mogul Clive Davis will join the “Me & Bobby McGee” singer’s siblings, Michael and Laura, for the plaque unveiling ceremony on Nov. 4.

Country star and actor Kristofferson, who was a close friend to the blues singer, will perform a special acoustic version of “Me and Bobby McGee,” which Joplin recorded in 1970 just before her death.

Her star will be the 2,510th on the Walk of Fame.
