Lizzo Makes History

It's a sound like no other...

Lizzo made history by playing a 200-year-old crystal flute once owned by U.S. president James Madison.

The U.S. Library of Congress, which boasts the largest collection of flutes in the world, loaned Lizzo the instrument during the Washington, D.C. stop of her Special Tour.

“IM THE FIRST & ONLY PERSON TO PLAY THIS PRESIDENTIAL CRYSTAL FLUTE ITS LITERALLY AN HEIRLOOM,” Lizzo exclaimed in an Instagram post. "LIKE… AS A FLUTE PLAYER THIS IS ICONIC AND I WILL NEVER BE OVER IT.

“NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE… NOW YOU DO.”

Before playing a few notes, Lizzo told the crowd the flute was a gift to Madison from a French flute designer to celebrate his second term in office. "We just made history tonight! Thank you to the Library of Congress for presenting that history and making history freaking cool.
