Kravitz has received numerous awards throughout his life in the music industry. Shortly before turning sixty years old, he got a star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood. His daughter Zoë spoke during the ceremony while longtime friend Denzel Washington gave an impressive speech. 

“It’s an incredible honor to be on this street. To be with all these great people who have done so many great things in life is an honor,” Kravitz said.

A grateful heart

Looking back, Kravitz confessed, “I never thought about it. When I was a kid, I was walking up and down the streets of New York City but mostly wondering where I would sleep that night. To have it now just feels so surreal, and I'm really grateful.”

Kravitz’s 60th birthday party and album release in Paris were a testimony to his legacy and enduring spirit. With loved ones beside him, as he celebrated fresh achievements, Kravitz continues to inspire and rock on.
