Lenny Kravitz Remembers Godmother Cicely Tyson In Emotional Tribute

On Friday, singer-songwriter Lenny Kravitz remembers his late Godmother Cicely Tyson in a lengthy emotional tribute.

In a series of pictures on his Instagram of the two, Kravitz remembers Tyson as a woman “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,” he said. “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,” Kravitz continues.

He went onto explain how Tyson’s role in his life was amplified following his mother’s death — they “were kindred spirits. Sisters,” he wrote.

From what he wrote, anyone would be able to tell that their relationship was a great one.  Tyson was always present for his shows. She “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.”

He reveals in the post that he and Tyson spoke just days before her sudden passing.

“Rest peacefully, Godmother. You did it all exquisitely,” he ended with.

Kravitz’s full tribute:

“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 #CicelyTyson
