Lenny Kravitz was unveiled as the recipient of the Music Icon Award at the upcoming 2024 People’s Choice Awards. He follows country singer/songwriter Shania Twain, who received the award in 2022, and pop star Christina Aguilera, who was honored in 2021.
Kravitz will be presented with the Music Icon Award during the ceremony at Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar on February 18. The “Fly Away” singer will also take the stage at the event, performing a mashup of his biggest hits.
Kravitz is no stranger to awards, including receiving the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance four years in a row (1999-2002), which still stands as the record for most consecutive Grammys by a male performer in one category. The 59-year-old singer might also pick up a few more awards this year, with his track “Road to Freedom”, written for Netflix’s drama Rustin, being up for the Best Original Song at the Golden Globes.
“Lenny’s musical gift is truly unmatched,” said Jen Neal, NBC Universal Entertainment’s EVP for Live Events and Specials. “We’re thrilled to honor him as this year’s Music Icon and look forward to seeing what he brings to the stage.”
Lenny Kravitz is also gearing up for the release of his twelfth studio album, Blue Electric Light. The record, his first in six years, will come out on March 15. Kravitz presented the album’s lead single, “TK421”, back in October.
