Lenny Kravitz surprised one of his biggest and littlest fans Baby Boy Drummer Tuesday on The Ellen Show.

Baby Boy Drummer, who’s real name is Justin Wilson II, is an immensely gifted musician. Wilson appeared on Ellen at four-years-old and played Kravitz’s classic “Fly Away.”

When asked then by Ellen how long he’d be playing, Wilson said since he was 18-months-old, “a long time.”

On Tuesday Wilson returned, now five and a kindergartner, and played Kravitz’s hit, “Fly Away.” While playing, Kravitz’s came out and surprised Wilson.

Impressively, Wilson kept playing until Kravitz came to get him off the drums.

“Lenny! Lenny! It’s so good to see you,” said Wilson to Lenny Kravitz while beaming.

While at Ellen, Kravitz talked about the Bahamas, where he has a home, and the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian.

“What I’m really concerned with are the locals. The heart and the soul of these islands are the locals, the people of the Bahamas,” said Kravitz. “I feel bad for the rich folks who lost their places, but they’ll be able to rebuild. But it’s about these people who don’t have the means to rebuild.”

Before Kravitz left, Ellen and Shutterfly donated $100,000 to his relief efforts.
