Lizzo Plays James Madison’s Flute

Lizzo played a priceless 200-year-old flute at her Washington D.C. concert this week. 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.
