Lenny Kravitz

Known for such hits as “Fly Away”, “Are You Gonna Go My Way?”, and “It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over”, Lenny Kravitz won the Grammy awards for “Best Male Rock Vocal Performance” five years in a row between 1998 and 2001. Although he has childhood memories of such jazz greats as Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, and Miles Davis–who were friends of his parents–Kravitz decided to pursue a music career outside the confines of jazz. He first gained fame with this top-of-the-charts hit “Justify My Love”, which he composed for Madonna.  As an artist he has produced works in a variety of styles such as soul, pop, funk, folk, and hard rock in addition to straight rock.
