Lenny Kravitz Says Goodbye To His Godmother Cicely Tyson With A Hearty Homage: “The Love Between Us Was And Is Tremendous”

After it was announced that Hollywood legend Cicely Tyson had been passed away on January 28, a great number of celebs flooded their social media accounts to pay tribute to her. However, as her godson; singer, songwriter and actor Lenny Kravitz became seemingly one of those most devastated by the news.

A day after Tyson’s passing, Kravitz went to his verified Instagram account to release a heartfelt message in honor of the Hollywood star. Alongside a series of photos that sees the two together, the Grammy Award-winning artist began his caption by saying that his “dear Godmother Miss Cicely Tyson made her grand exit to the heavens,” and continued then:

“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.”

Following describing the legendary actor as a black queen who changed all the negative perceptions over people of color, Kravitz told of the deep bond between him and his Godmother by saying:

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.”

One of the 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock revealed that Tyson always gave him unconditional support by coming to his show, visiting him on holidays, and even staying with him in Paris when he first moved there. Stating that they made hours-long phone calls, Kravitz said that he spoke to her just a few nights ago, before her passing. He concluded his words as follows:

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.” 

Kravitz’s abovementioned post received highly heartfelt comments from notable names in the celebs world, including Kate Hudson, Lee Daniels, and Guy Oseary.
