“We did everything we could to keep it safe for y’all. … I love you guys,” Lizzo said in the short Twitter clip. “Thank you so much for being the heroes in this story. And we’re staying inside and we’re praying and thinking of you guys every single day. God bless you.”
This isn’t the only hospital Lizzo has shown her appreciation for. She has done the same for some medical facilities in Minneapolis, Seattle, and Boston. Boston Medical Center also tweeted out a message to Lizzo for her response in helping the staff get fed as well.
