Lenny Kravitz at the 2024 People’s Choice Awards

Lenny Kravitz let his music do the talking as he accepted the Music Icon Award at the 2024 People's Choice Awards.

While Taylor Swift snagged four awards, she couldn't make it due to her tour in Australia. Kravitz stole the show with a performance of his greatest hits and a heartfelt speech, reminiscing about his journey in the music industry.

Lenny Kravitz and his band kicked off their performance with "Fly Away" and then smoothly transitioned into a medley featuring "TK421," "It Ain't Over Til It's Over," "Let Love Rule," and "Are You Gonna Go My Way."

Lenny Kravitz reflects on the word "icon," saying, "It holds different meanings for different folks. For me, it's about leaving a lasting impression by embracing who you truly are, and having the courage to stand out."

More than 35 years ago, before achieving 11 albums, selling 40 million records, and winning four Grammys, Lenny Kravitz faced pressure to conform.

He recalls, "When I was starting out, many people offered me deals, but they wanted me to change. They said my music wasn't 'black enough' or 'white enough.'

It didn't fit into a neat category or sound like what was popular on the radio at the time." Lenny Kravitz turned down lucrative offers and glamorous promises of fame because he couldn't compromise his authenticity.

Describing an icon, Kravitz believes it's someone who inspires and encourages others to believe in themselves, regardless of their chosen path.

For Kravitz, his journey has never been solely about commercial success or accolades. He doesn't chase hits or conform to trends; instead, he values the journey, gratitude, and utilizing the talents he's been given.

His love for music has always been deep-rooted, and he emphasizes the importance of staying true to oneself, setting individual paths, and appreciating the present moment.

Monét, in her introduction, celebrates Kravitz as a multifaceted talent, acknowledging his roles as a father, musician, performer, actor, designer, and philanthropist.

She hails him as a visionary and the embodiment of living by the principle of "letting love rule.
