Lizzo gifted her mom a brand new Audi for Christmas, after previously revealing that she lived in a car and cried herself to sleep when her dad died. The 32-year-old Grammy-winner shared the moment with a video she posted on Instagram.
The video comes less than one week after Lizzo gifted her mom, Shari Johnson-Jefferson, a brand new, black Audi truck for Christmas as a holiday surprise, which she presented with a large, red bow. Lizzo's heartwarming gift is magnificent in itself, but it also has a deeply personal and sentimental meaning.
The vocalist captioned her post: 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. I couldn't do it for my dad, so Imma make sure I spoil Mama. Happy holidays y’all." Her mom was immediately brought to tears of gratitude and joy.
Last January, Lizzo opened up about her dad's death, and told that she was a student at the University of Houston, but dropped out sooner after his passing. She gave up because she was depressed. All she got was a Subaru, which was her home for a little. She spent Thanksgiving in that car and cried until she fell asleep.
Despite her tragic loss, Lizzo eventually picked herself back up, using everything that happened to her to make her stronger. Since then, the star has gone on to win a Billboard Music award, BET award and iHeartRadio Music award — plus three Grammy Awards. Last year, she was TIME's Entertainer of the Year.
