Music artist Lizzo broke down in tears after receiving a personal Christmas message from world-renowned flutist James Galway.
The “Tempo” singer shared in an Instagram Story a clip of Galway, 83, playing the well-known “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” on his flute before wishing Lizzo a Merry Christmas and describing himself as her “number one.” ” designated fan.”
After sharing Galway’s congratulations, the singer, who is also a classically trained flutist, was followed by a video titled “MY REACTION” in which she bursts into tears and asks her followers, “Is that the fuck James Galway?”
2019,that her passion for learning the flute at a young age was because it was “a very difficult instrument”.
“Well, I remember in fifth grade I just wanted to be really good. I was like, ‘I really want to be good on the flute. Everyone else is so bad.’ And it was so hard to be good at it. It’s a very difficult instrument. I kind of became obsessed with being good,” she said.
The Grammy winner made history in late September when sheonce owned by former US President James Madison. She got the opportunity to play the priceless crystal flute during a visit to the Library of Congress in Washington DC, where the historical instrument is kept.
Lizzo has had a busy 2022. Between a hugely successful tour and her latest album Special, which earned a Grammys nomination for Record of the Year, the singer also made a big purchase:
The musician described the purchase as a “milestone” and said only ten years ago she was sleeping in her car.
“Yeah. Whoo! Stay in people’s rooms and sleep on their couches,” she said. “And now, on this past tour that I’ve been blessed with, I’ve stayed in really beautiful places, but I’m still like, ‘I miss my house. I can’t wait to get back home to my bed.’ And I was like, ‘This is the first time I’m saying that.'”
