Lizzo’s Gesture of Gratitude

Who doesn’t love a generous meal? Especially now, when the world is fighting a pandemic. Lizzo, the Grammy Award winner from Detroit, made sure to treat several emergency staff to lunch in their appreciation on National Doctor’s Day! That is just something.

Not only was Lizzo being kind by making sure their stomachs  were full but she also took to social media to thank these heroes at the frontlines, with a sweet message,  “It’s definitely not easy and you guys are putting yourselves on the frontlines, so because of that I wanted to treat y’all to a meal and I really hope that you guys enjoy the food.”

The hospital members at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit and ER personnel in Minnesota and The Henry ford News took to Twitter with a hashtag #HealthcareHeroes and showed their appreciation for this gesture by tweeting their love for Lizzo.

Also, after ensuring a safe handover of the food, Lizzo confirmed that her team had put in an enormous amount of effort to safely deliver these meals, and that now, all of them would be doing nothing but staying indoors and praying for the one’s on the field.

The singer also shared a montage video of the medical staff at work in the hospitals and encouraged her fans to donate to the World Health Organisation’s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund.  

This was an incredibly heartwarming gesture and Lizzo, in her own right, is very much a hero too!

The Show Must Go On

Home Fest: A Late Late Night Special, special happened and it was a major kick in our rather dull week. A number of stars joined James Corden while he opened up about the medical and mental health of the country. So here is us thinking that this special show was really, actually brought to us by the virus, eh? Here’s what he said about the great equalizer: “This virus has brought us altogether. It’s united us in something. This virus has shown that we are all equal, we are all simply human. This virus doesn’t discriminate in anyway.” 

The show started with a precious first guest, John Legend. Of course, no Legend story is complete with Chrissy Tiegen, so she joined in as well in the live stream from their Los Angeles home. Before performing a song on the piano, the couple had this to say: “The hardest part is just trying to figure out how to entertain the kids. You gain a new respect for what preschool teachers do for five, six hours a day. We are gaining weight and we love it.” We’re honestly glad to hear this; makes us feel better about the rolls we have been inviting. 

After John, Billie Eilish and Finneas joined in also from Los Angeles, playing songs with puppies on their laps and basically making all our days. There was David Blaine, the magician, in there somewhere, and then Dua Lipa came in from London with her whole damn band, phew! A lot happened and the fans were ecstatic with the banter and the freshness of it all. 

Not just this, Italian vocalist, Andrea Bocelli, also joined in to pay tribute to those at the frontlines of the calamity that faces the country. 
Of course, no parliament of the best talent is complete without BTS, so of course they joined in from Seoul. RM said, “I think it’s quite a difficult time for everyone in the world right now. It may seem like we’re isolated but we’re still connected.” 

Ben Platt also performed a song too that was rather emotional and so was Corden towards the end. 

“I found I just get so overwhelmed with sadness in it all really and the truth is what I have realized it’s okay right now to feel a bit sad,” he said. “The best thing we can do is try and breathe through that and try and put our minds in a positive place.”
