Lizzo Plays Library Of Congress Legendary Flute: Look + Listen

Treating her fans at D.C.’s Capital One Arena to a piece of history on Tuesday night (9.27,) superstar rapper/writer Lizzo played a 200-year-old crystal flute.

According to the Library of Congress, the legendary wind instrument was crafted in 1813 by French flute designer Claude Laurent and gifted to President James Madison to honor his second inauguration.

In the days leading up to musician’s D.C. stop on her North American tour, Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden tweeted an apparent invitation for Lizzo to visit the library’s extensive flute collection writing: “We would love for you to come see it and even play a couple when you are in D.C. next week.” “Like your song they are “Good as hell.”

After stopping by the Library the Congress earlier that day, the artist’s dream came true as The Grammy-award winner got to try out the historic flute on stage, later stating:

“Bitch, I just twerked and played James Madison’s flute from the 1800s.” “Thank you to the Library of Congress for preserving our history and making history cool. History is freaking cool, you guys!”
