Lizzo makes history by playing 200-year-old crystal flute onstage

The Juice hitmaker, who is a classically trained flautist, was invited to view the world's largest flute collection at the U.S. Library of Congress on Monday. During the visit, Lizzo took the opportunity to play the priceless instrument made for President James Madison by Claude Laurent that was rescued from the White House during the War of 1812. After the star confirmed that she could play the flute, curators arranged for it to be securely transported to the Capitol One Arena where she was carefully handed it at one point during her The Special Tour gig on Tuesday night.
