In the footage, Shari breaks down in tears when she finally sees the car, before turning around to give her daughter a hug. At the beginning of 2020, in January, Lizzo opened up about her father’s death. Speaking to CBS This Morning she said that she was a student at the University of Houston at the time and dropped out of college soon after.
She described how she fell into depression and gave up. “I was depressed. I didn’t have a purpose, like I didn’t feel like I had a purpose for being a musician or anything. So that turned into, ‘Oh can I sleep on your couch,’ and that eventually, I got really guilt-ridden. So all I had was this car. It was a Subaru.”
She recalled crying whilst living in the car. Fortunately, her talent paved the way and opened opportunities for her. Lizzo said, “I used everything that happened to me and made myself stronger.”
The ‘Truth Hurts’ star has gone on to win three Grammy Awards. She’s also taken home a Billboard Music Award, BET Award, and iHeartRadio Music Award. In 2019, she was also named “Entertainer of the Year” by TIME. Now she’s paying it forward.
