Lenny Kravitz to pay tribute to Industry Icons in Oscars in Memoriam performance

As the world prepares for one of the most anticipated award ceremonies of the year, the Oscars have announced that Lenny Kravitz will be gracing the stage for a special performance and paying tribute to some of the industry’s biggest losses.

The upcoming  95th Oscars ceremony has announced that the legendary Lenny Kravitz will grace the In Memoriam segment with his soulful sound.

The four-time Grammy winner has never brought home an Oscar, but his contributions to film extend far beyond the soundstage. With a resume that includes appearances in The Hunger Games, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, and Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire, Kravitz is a cinematic staple. Not to mention, he has also raised a movie star daughter with her own impressive Oscars legacy.


Kravitz’s musical career is equally impressive, with 11 studio albums that span a range of genres from rock to jazz. His hit tracks, such as Fly Away and American Woman, have garnered international acclaim, and his 1993 album Are You Gonna Go My Way soared to the top of the UK charts.

After the broadcast on Sunday, A.frame, the Academy’s digital magazine, will offer an extended gallery of more than 200 filmmakers, artists, and industry executives who have left their mark on the entertainment world. And as an added bonus, Rihanna will also take the stage to perform her Oscar-nominated song, Lift Me Up, from Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. It’s sure to be a night of remembrance, celebration, and unforgettable performances.
