Lenny Kravitz Is People’s Choice 2024 Icon

Following in the footsteps of former recipients Christina Aguilera (2021) and Shania Twain (2022,) Lenny Kravitz will be honored with the Music Icon Award at the 2024 People’s Choice Awards.

On the recent awards front the now 59-year old iconic musician had both success and disappointment with “Road to Freedom.” Written, performed and produced for the Netflix film Rustin, the soul-stirring anthem brought him a Golden Globe nomination for best original song – motion picture, and a Critics Choice Awards nod for best song, but it was bypassed on Tuesday (1.23) for an Oscar nomination.

Between 1999-2022, the superstar singer/songwriter took home Grammy Awards for best male rock vocal performances for “Fly Away,” “American Woman,” “Again” and “Dig In.” Kravitz was also a 2023 Hollywood Walk of Fame inductee, and will release a new album, Blue Electric Light, on May 24.

In a statement, executive vice president, live events and specials, NBCUniversal Entertainment, Jen Neal, said “Lenny’s musical gift is truly unmatched.” “We’re thrilled to honor him as this year’s Music Icon and look forward to seeing what he brings to the stage.”

Hosted by actor Simu Liu, the 2024 People’s Choice Awards, will air live on Sunday, February 18, at 8 p.m. ET /5 p.m. PT on NBC, Peacock and E! from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica,
