Lenny Kravitz Pays Impassioned Tribute To “Godmother” Cicely Tyson

Published: Sunday 31st Jan 2021 by Sam

With the world mourning the inimitable Cicely Tyson who died this week aged 96, so too is singer Lenny Kravitz.

Many have pointed to the actress’ incomparable impact on the entertainment industry, especially as relates to the advancements in the depiction of Black women on screen.

For Kravitz, the resonance of the star’s presence was also felt on a personal level too.

Referencing Tyson as his “Godmother,” the rocker has paid emotional tribute.

His words below…

“With inimitable style and grace, my dear Godmother Miss Cicely Tyson made her grand exit to the heavens. She lived a remarkable life up to the last moment. A true pioneer, who bared her heart and soul so we could witness the spirit of the characters she so brilliantly portrayed, which continue to move and inspire generations. 

A Black queen who showed us how beautiful black is. 

The love between us was and is tremendous.  As long as I have had consciousness, I’ve known Godmother. She and my mother were kindred spirits. Sisters. And after my mother passed, Godmother’s role in my life was amplified.  I constantly felt her spirit over me. She always gave me unconditional support. She came to my shows, came over for holidays, met me for dinners, stayed with me in Paris when I first moved there, and never let me too far out of her sight.

Our phone calls went on sometimes for hours. We spoke just a few nights ago and talked about everything. She had just sent me her book that has been sitting on my nightstand where it will remain. She did it all, wrote the book, and then God called her. I can hear Godmother saying  “ok, now y’all can read about it, I’m going home”. Rest peacefully, Godmother. You did it all exquisitely.”

Our thoughts and prayers remain with Cicely’s loved ones.
