What has Al Roker said about Lenny Kravitz?

The A-list distant cousins often pay tribute to each other on social media as well as during TV chats.

On April 7, 2020, Al publicly celebrated the Fly Away singer’s latest business venture on Instagram.

The 68-year-old shared a one-minute video of himself unboxing a package from Lenny’s new oral wellness company, Twice.

The rocker revealed that he has been working on the line for several years after embarking on a mission to ensure that everyone has access to dental care in his hometown of Eleuthera, Bahamas.

He gushed: “I just got a package from my cuz Lenny Kravitz and his Twice oral hygiene line. All kinds of cool stuff… Thanks, Lenny!

Touched by his excitement, Lenny commented on the clip: “Love ya cuz.”

The 58-year-old also isn’t shy about praising his relative – and applauded him during a Today show interview in October 2020.

The weatherman responded: “I learned from you, cuz. Thanks so much.”

Fans are still left baffled when finding out two of America’s highly admired men are actually related.
