Lizzo has announced that she is offering a new scholarship for black music students studying at the University Of Houston.
Lizzo is giving back to her alma mater as part of her Juneteenth giveback series.
“Today is very close to my heart, near and dear to home and a milestone for me,” the 35-year-old superstar said in a video she uploaded on Instagram. “It is for any young Black student from Houston, Texas who has applied to go to University of Houston to study at the Moores School of Music.”
“That was me just a couple years ago, a young Black flute player who just needed a scholarship and someone to believe in them,” she added. “Now I get to pay it forward.”
Lizzo also shared an old photo of her playing flute as a member of the University of Houston band.
She said that the winner of the Sasha Be Flooting scholarship would be announced “very, very soon.”
