Lizzo's powerful presentation at the People's Choice Awards on Tuesday night has earned her praise from none other than rock icon Stevie Nicks.

Serial Grammy-winner Lizzo received two awards at the event, including one for the song of 2022 for the single "About Damn Time." And, while accepting "The People's Champion" award, Lizzo turned the spotlight onto activists who she admires for their groundbreaking work.

Fleetwood Mac legend Nicks apparently tuned into Lizzo's speech, tweeting out a commendation the following day. She tagged her fellow musician in a Wednesday tweet, which included a screenshot of a personal note.

"Dearest Lizzo~," Nicks began, "In my opinion~ your presentation last night on the People's Choice Awards was not only so beautiful and so needed that you get the award for being a great woman of our time. I was so impressed and so touched that you put that together and pulled it off."

She continued: "It was stunning and everyone heard you. You have given all women soundbites forever~ flute player, singer, songwriter, future politician..? Your name is in the stars now~ Much love, Stevie Nicks."

While onstage, Lizzo highlighted the work of the following activists and community leaders: Mari Copeny, Shirley Raines, Yasmine Aker, Emiliana Guereca, Esther Young Lim, Felicia "Fe" Montes, Jayla Rose Sullivan, Kara Roselle Smith, Maggie Mireles, Amelia Bonow, Odilia Romero, Rabbi Tarlan Rabizadeh, Sahar Pirzada, Chandi Moore, Crystal Echo Hawk, Reshma Saujani and Tamika Palmer.

Lizzo also made history this past fall after playing a centuries-old crystal flute that had once belonged to a Founding Father: former President James Madison.

Nicks has previously shared to social media notes penned to other famed musicians. Last week, for instance, she posted a handwritten letter to fellow Fleetwood Mac member Christine McVie, who had just died at 79.

"A few hours ago," Nicks wrote in cursive scrawl, "I was told that my best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975, had passed away. I didn't even know she was ill...until late Saturday night. I wanted to be in London; I wanted to get to London—but we were told to wait. So, since Saturday, one song has been swirling around in my head, over and over and over. I thought I might possibly get to sing it to her, and so, I'm singing it to her now."

Nicks' note also included some of the lyrics to "Hallelujah" by the band HAIM.

Newsweek reached out to Lizzo and Nicks for additional comment.
