Lenny Kravitz jams along with his own song

So apparently the story is this — Lenny Kravitz, creator of songs, Zoe Kravitz and stylish ensembles for Katniss Everdeen of District 12, was walking down the street, and happened to overhear the Voice of Praise Choir of New Orleans’ First Baptist Church, performing “Fly Away” on the street.

Kravitz proceeds to join in.

The part I love happens about halfway through, when Kravitz hops on the drums: For one thing, I always love musicians who can genuinely play more than one instrument. For another thing, he’s not trying to take over — he simply keeps the beat going while this kid in a blue polo shirt busts out a pretty mean guitar solo. That’s what music should be about — people gathering together, for no other reason than to make a joyous noise.
