MyPod: Lenny Kravitz [VIDEO]

Subscribe to Mix 94.1 on

I will admit that I am not a huge fan of Lenny Kravitz, but I do respect him as an artist.

What I find incredible is how every one of his songs can take on a whole new music genre. He can be a rocker, pop artist and, at times, sound like he came out of the Motown era. Which is what brings me to this week’s “MyPod.”

Kravitz was born in New York City and is the son of Actress Roxie Roker. If you’re not familiar with her name you may be familiar with the character she played on TV. Roker was on the TV weekly in the 70’s as “Helen Willis” on The Jeffersons.

What I love about this week’s “MyPod” is that it reminds me of a song that you could of heard on the radio in the 60’s from Smokey Robinson & The Miracles. If you heard it today, you may even think that it was a previously unreleased track from that group.

In 1999, Kravitz scored a Grammy for Rock Male Vocal (his second) with his rendition of the Guess Who classic, “American Woman.” It didn’t hurt that is was featured in the Mike Myers’ film, “Austin Powers.” But, nine years earlier in 1991, Kravitz scored his biggest hit to date with “It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over” and took it all the way to #2.

Enjoy Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, I mean, Lenny Kravitz with this week’s “MyPod” pick.
