Lizzo Makes History Playing James Madison’s Crystal Flute
Lizzo played a priceless 200-year-old flute at her Washington D.C. concert. She's now the first person in two centuries to perform with the crystal flute once owned by former President James Madison. At the concert, she gave a short history lesson about the historic flute. When the British burned down the White House during the War of 1812, the only two items that were saved was a portrait of George Washington and the crystal flute.
