Lizzo cried tears of joy after she received some season’s greetings from flute legend James Galway.
The Grammy Award-winning singer and skilled flute player took to Twitter on Christmas to share a beautiful video she received from fellow flutist Galway, who is renowned in the art form and known as “The Man with the Golden Flute.”
In the video, Galway sat in front of a lit-up Christmas tree and played “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” on his flute. He then looked at the camera and sent a special message to Lizzo.
“Merry Christmas, Lizzo, from your number one fan!” he said.
Lizzo shared the video on Twitter to express how overjoyed she was by the special video message.
“This is the greatest gift @sirjamesgalway wished *me* a merry Christmas!!” she wrote. “Price went up”
In a follow up video, Lizzo shared her emotional reaction to the video.
“Is that f*****g James Galway?” she asked.
