MUSIC – It’s not pipeau, far from it. In concert, this Tuesday, September 27 at the Capital One Arena in Washington DC, Lizzo made history by playing with a crystal flute. It was not just any instrument since it dates from 1813 and belonged to James Madison, the fourth President of the United States.

As you can see in the videodespite her talents as a flutist Lizzo was slightly impressed by this flute as brilliant as her outfit that evening.

The interpreter of About Damn Time had been questioned on Twitter by Carla Hayden, the director of the Library of Congress. With 1800 flutes, the library holds the largest collection of flutes in the world.

Among these 1800 wind instruments is James Madison’s famous crystal flute. It was a gift from a French flute maker to congratulate him on his second term as President of the United States.

After her few minutes with the crystal flute, Lizzo returned the instrument to Library employees escorted by Capitol Police.

For the rest of his tour “The Special Tour”Lizzo will no longer be accompanied by the crystal flute but will perhaps play her own flute which she nicknamed Sasha Diamanté Flute, in homage to Beyoncé.
