Lizzo Played 200 Years Old Crystal Flute
Melissa Viviane Jefferson, aka Lizzo (born on April 27, 1988), is a 34-years-old American singer who is renowned for exceptional skills. Over the years, Lizzy has released numerous singles and albums, including “Cuz I Love You” and “Big Grrrl Small World.” Besides her beautiful voice, Viviane is also known for her art of playing the flute. Currently, Jefferson works with different American music labels like BGSW, TGNP, Nice Life, and Atlantic.
Lizzy gained worldwide attention in September 2022 after playing a 200-year-old crystal flute during a concert. According to reliable sources, the US Library of Congress invited the singer to view their flute collection, which is the world’s most extensive collection of flutes. Lizo was incredibly excited about founding father James Madison’s crystal flute, made over two centuries ago in 1813. She later got to play onstage during her performance in Washington, DC.
Do you know that Lizzo dropped out of college during her struggle days so she could focus more on music? Fascinating right? Well, in this article, there are a lot of facts related to Viviane’s life, so keep reading.
How was Lizzo’s Childhood?
On April 27, 1988, Lizzo (age 34) was born to her father, Michael, and mother, Michael Jefferson, in Detroit, Michigan, America. She has two siblings a younger brother named Eric and a sister named Vanessa. Until age 10, Melissa spent her childhood in Michigan, but later she and her family shifted to Houston, Texas.
After moving to the new town, she came in contact with a music teacher named Claudia Mome and started learning how to play flute from her. By the time Viviane completed high school, she had developed a taste for rap music and formed a band named Cornrow Clique; from there, she opted for Lizzo as her stage name.
In 2006 she enrolled at the UoH (University of Houston), majoring in classical music. Three years later, her dad left the world, and because of the financial crunch, she had to live in her car while trying to develop a viable career in the American music industry. Meanwhile, she also dropped out her college and started paying particular attention to developing her skills.
From Living in a Car to Becoming a Music Sensation
After leaving college in 2011, she moved to Minnesota and connected with a group. During the early days of her career, Viviane had to sacrifice many things; she faced the real struggle but never let anything come between her and her dreams. Two years after shifting to Minneapolis, Lizzo released her album “Lizzobangers.” There were articles by the Guardian and Star Tribune which praised “Lizzobangers.”
After the success of the debut album, the talented singer released video songs like “Paris,” “Faded,” and Batches & Cookies.” That year she also did a tour with Har Mar Superstar and performed with him during his trips to US and UK.
With time, Lizzo grew as an artist and accumulated millions of fans on her social media handles. Her second album, “Big Grrrl Small World,” also proved to be a hit, and her stature as an artist grew significantly after that. She is one of the most famous plus-size American artists and is an inspiration for many.
Currently, Lizzo is not married but is in a romantic relationship with her boyfriend, Myke Wright. Melissa’s lover is also an artist; he started his career by doing stand-up comedy and later shifted to acting. He has worked on Will McFadden’s movie “Doubting Thomas” which came in 2018.
