This week, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced that Lenny Kravitz will pay tribute to the late musician, Prince, at the April 7 Induction Ceremony to be held at Barclays Center.
Kravitz, who considered Prince more than an idol, but a close friend, took to Twitter to express how meaningful this tribute will be for him.
“Getting ready to honor my friend Prince at the @rockhall ceremony. This is very personal for me and I so wish it wasn’t for this reason.”

Soon after Prince’s passing in April 2016, Kravitz spoke to Rolling Stone about how he was dealing with the musicians death.
“I still haven’t really recovered,” he said. “Not to be dramatic or overly sensitive, but I really feel like a piece of me died.”
The ceremony will also welcome performances by Alicia Keys, Mary Chapin Carpenter and the Indigo Girls. In addition Snoop Dogg will induct the late rapper Tupac Shakur into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, while Pharrell Williams will induct Nile Rodgers.
