And the fans are who Mana wanted to make sure were recognized.

"It's very difficult for a Latino artist to break here in the United States, and we are very grateful for everybody that's been behind this band for almost 30 years," said Alex Gonzalez.

America Ferrera and Carlos Santana were on hand for the unveiling.

Mana will play on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Wednesday night.
