One of entertainment's most beloved Hollywood legends recently celebrated her 93 years of life and she received a very special message from her famous godson in honor of her big day.

Actress Cicely Tyson has built a career that broke barriers for Black women and women in general as both an entertainer and an activist, so of course the world took a pause to wish her the happiest of birthdays earlier this week on December 19. Joining in on the celebration with a personal message of his own was none other than talented musician Lenny Kravitz, who shared short and sweet shoutout for his godmother on his Instagram page.


The stunning 93-year-old film and television star was a close friend of Kravitz' mother, Roxie Roker, who also built a lucrative career in Hollywood before her untimely death in 1995 at the age of 66. 

Prior to celebrating her milestone day, Ms. Tyson broke the Internet by landing on the cover of ELLE Magazine's November issue.

Other notable public figures who sent along well wishes for her birthday included Viola Davis and Debra Lee.
