Lenny Kravitz

Regarded as one of the preeminent rock musicians of our time, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of '60s and '70s soul, rock and funk.

Kravitz's multiple talents as a writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist have resonated through eight studio albums into a timeless catalog. From 1999 to 2002, he won four consecutive Grammy Awards (for his singles Dig In, Again, American Woman and Fly Away), setting a record for the most wins in the Best Male Rock Vocal Performance category. In 2004, he received his sixth Grammy nomination in the category for If I Could Fall In Love off of his sixth studio album, Lenny. Kravitz's appeal has also been recognized by his peers; his collaborative efforts are as varied as his own influences, having worked with Madonna, Slash, Aerosmith, Jay-Z, N.E.R.D., Mick Jagger, P. Diddy and Alicia Keys.

Having sold over 38 million albums worldwide, the 44-year old Kravitz's musical success has afforded him many opportunities to fulfill his creative vision beyond the recording industry. He recently launched Kravitz Design, a creative firm that undertakes various high-concept projects for commercial and residential interiors and product design.

Kravitz's latest studio album, It Is Time For A Love Revolution, was released in February 2008. In 2009, the 20th anniversary deluxe edition of Kravitz's debut album, Let Love Rule, was issued.

In addition to this supporting role in PRECIOUS, Kravitz has also appeared in cameos in such films as THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY and ZOOLANDER.
