Lizzo made headlines last week when she performed on a hundreds-of-years-old crystal flute made by James Madison, and it appears she’s about to make history again, as she’s been invited to visit the former president’s estate.
According to Complex, a state spokesperson revealed that the “About Damn Time” singer has an open invitation to a private tour following her viral performance at the Library of Congress.
They also hope that she will perform at the estate if she accepts the invitation.
Furthermore, the estate is making every effort to bring the crystal flute from the Library of Congress to the former president’s home.
Because there is no record of James Madison playing the instrument, Lizzo could go down in history as the first person to do so in the president’s household.
As of this writing, the singer has not responded to the invitation because she is currently on tour in North America, which will conclude next month.
The pop star will take a few months off before resuming her European tour in February 2023.
During her concert in Washington, D.C., Lizzo was reportedly the first person ever to play Madison’s crystal flute. The instrument was made in 1813 as a gift for the former president, and despite its centuries of age, it still works.
In videos circulated online, the singer appeared nervous while playing the instrument, telling the audience that she was “scared.”
In addition to her performance, Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress, invited the singer to visit the city’s largest flute collection.
She also played other flutes made of various materials, including metal, wood, and others.
The latest news comes after the pop star broke down in tears after winning an Emmy for the best competitive program for her series “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.”
The singer’s official website has a complete list of tour dates and tickets.
