HOLLYWOOD (CNS) - Janis Joplin will posthumously receive the 2,510th  star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Nov. 4, with her friend Kris Kristofferson  performing a special acoustic version of ``Me and Bobby McGee.''

Joplin's siblings, Michael and Laura Joplin, will accept the star, the  Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which administers the Walk of Fame, announced  today.

The ceremony at 6752 Hollywood Blvd., in front of the Musicians  Institute, will begin at 11:30 a.m. and be streamed at walkoffame.com.

Joplin has been called ``the greatest white urban blues and soul singer  of her generation.'' She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in  1995.

Joplin was found dead of a heroin overdose in a Hollywood hotel room on  Oct. 4, 1970 at the age of 27.
