Singer Lenny Kravitz, one of America's most popular rock stars, has announced he will make his first visit to Israel in the summer, Israel's leading newspaper reported Thursday.
The 42-year-old singer will visit as a tourist, and has not decided if he will perform here during the visit.
During the Jewish-African American reception earlier this week, Kravitz told Israel's consul general in New York, Aryeh Mekel, that he will be arriving in Israel in the next two-to-three months to visit friends in Tel Aviv.
Kravitz was born in New York, grew up in Los Angeles, and at the end of the 1980s returned to New York. He is the son of Roxie Roker, who played Helen Willis on the 1970s sitcom "The Jeffersons" and Jewish television producer Sy Kravitz.
