Lenny Kravitz would be named after this uncle, who was killed in action in the Korean War at the age of 19, while defending against a Chinese attack and saving most of his platoon; he was posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross but was denied the Medal of Honor.
Kravitz grew up spending weekdays on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, with his parents, attending P. 6 for elementary school, and weekends at his grandmother Bessie Roker's house in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. Kravitz grew up listening to the music his parents listened to: R&B, jazz, classical, opera, gospel, and blues.
He taught himself to play piano and bass, and made friends with Zoro who would later become his long-time collaborator. He also appeared as an actor in television commercials during this time.
At his mother's urging, Kravitz joined the California Boys Choir for three years, where he performed a classical repertoire, and sang with the Metropolitan Opera.
