Lenny Kravitz with an inspiring speech after accepting the People's Choice Music Icon Award

The world's most famous singer, Lenny Kravitz, gave an inspiring speech to the new generations after accepting the "music icon" award, a special career award, on Sunday at the "People's Choice Awards" ceremony, reports CNN.

When he took the stage to accept the award, Kravitz revealed how much he had thought about what he would say throughout the speech, as well as the word "icon."

"The word 'icon' has many different meanings to many people, but to me it means that you have left an undeniable mark by being who God made you to be. When I was taking my first steps in music, many people offered me many deals, but they asked me to change. My music was not 'black' enough, nor 'white' enough... I refused the money and the 'glitz' of the promises of fame, because I could not live without being my authentic self".

He continued his speech by saying that nothing in his career has anything to do with calculating how many records he has sold, or the number of songs, or how many awards he has won. The star said that for him, the only important thing throughout his career was that he enjoyed the art he was making and the music he was recording, using the gift God gave him, the voice.

Kravitz charged young artists to never follow trends.

"Set your own pace and accept that the best for you is here, now, in front of you", he said after reflecting on 35 years of his career, where he also thanked his parents who took him and took him to various concerts without left under the care of a nanny.

"Blue Electric Light", is his new album and the 12th in a row that will be released in May. The star has also said he will tour Europe throughout the summer.
