Lenny Kravitz will receive the Music Icon Award at the 2024 People’s Choice Awards, and will take the stage for a multi-song performance. Past recipients of that award are Christina Aguilera (2021) and Shania Twain (2022).

Kravitz had both success and disappointment on the awards trail with “Road to Freedom,” which he wrote, 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 passed over on Tuesday (Jan. 23) for an Oscar nomination for best original song.

Kravitz won Grammy Awards in four consecutive years (1999-2002) for best male rock vocal performance for “Fly Away,” “American Woman,” “Again” and “Dig In.”

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

Kravitz was selected as a 2023 Hollywood Walk of Fame inductee, and will release a new album, Blue Electric Light, on May 24.
