Lizzo has revealed the impact that Destiny’s Child had on her decision to become an artist.
“Growing up in Houston, the impact that Destiny’s Child had on me making a decision to become an artist was incredible, mostly because I felt like we were so close to it,” Lizzo said in an interview with Elle UK.
“Everyone had their, ‘I saw Beyoncé when.’ or, ‘I saw Destiny’s Child at this party.’ stories. And that made it seem more accessible,” the singer added. “Like, ‘Oh, maybe I can do this too, if I worked hard enough and had the right people around me.'”
The multiple Grammy award winner recalled the experience of skipping school to go see her childhood heroes when they had an event at a Walmart store where they would sign albums.
“They had an album-signing event at a Wal-Mart and I skipped school to go see them. I listened to them sing their gospel medley. I’ve seen Beyoncé maybe up to 10 times live now, and she continues to give me that feeling.That excitement never goes away,” Lizzo told Elle UK‘s Kenya Hunt.
