29 Jun Lenny Kravitz “Fly’s Away” To Crash Choir
Lenny Kravitz crashed a choir in New Orleans late last week..and it was all recorded.
Here is a background on the story sent to us by Mathieu Bitton;
Lenny, Sidney Torres and I were sitting on the balcony at Muriel’s restaurant in Jackson Square, New Orleans when a friend of ours suddenly hear a band playing “Fly Away” across the park. I looked at Lenny and said “dude, let’s have you crash their gig and play with them.” Sidney ran out ahead of us and I grabbed the camera (never leave the hotel without it) and LK and I ran out to where the VOP choir was playing a few blocks away.
When we arrived, the kids in the choir lost their minds. It went on for about 15 minutes, but as always, I wanted to capture the best of it in this 5:23 minute video. Mike Smeaton who sang and played lead guitar was so cool, I couldn’t believe it. Never lost his cool. This was an incredible moment that will remind people why New Orleans is the greatest place for art in America right now. Don’t believe what people are saying about why it’s dangerous to come here, how the seafood is toxic and how’s there’s oil everywhere.
The reason we are all down here is to help fix this gulf disaster. Lenny is dedicating his life to this right now. He loves this place and will continue to do what he can to help.
I want to thank Mathieu for sharing this with us. We are going to have exclusive photos of Lenny helping out in New Orleans and a few other things that Mr. Bitton wanted to share with us.
For now, enjoy the video and let me know what you think.-Dr.FB
