Lizzo gave her mother an early Christmas gift over the weekend. The “Cause I Love You” singer blessed her mother with a new car.
Lizzo surprised her mom, Shari Johnson-Jefferson, and captured it on video. She captioned the emotional response from her mother, “Got my mommy a brand new Audi for Xmas [Christmas tree emoji,]”
Jefferson was in tears as she turned to hug her daughter. “I remember crying in my car when my daddy passed, no job no money nowhere to live, wishing I could one day provide for my family,” Lizzo added in the caption. “I couldn’t do it for my dad so ima make sure I spoil Mama. Happy holidays y’all.”
Lizzo recalled when her father had passed away, she dropped out of school and spent Thanksgiving in her car, crying herself to sleep. Since then Lizzo has won several awards including three Grammys and was named “Entertainer of the Year” by TIME in 2019.
