“Got my mommy a brand new Audi for X-mas. I remember crying in my car when my daddy passed, no job, no money nowhere to live, wishing I could one day provide for my family,” Lizzo said in the Instagram caption. “I couldn’t do it for my dad so Imma make sure I spoil Mama. Happy holidays y’all.”
In the video, the Grammy winner led her mom out to the driveway with her eyes closed. When Johnson-Jefferson opened them, there was a car wrapped in a bow waiting. The mother was brought to tears by the sweet Christmas gift.
TikTok users shared their support for Lizzo in the comment section.
“I’m smiling so hard,” one user wrote.
“Her reaction! So amazing of you to do this for her,” another said.
“That’s a beautiful thing to do for your mom!” a third person added.
Earlier this year, Lizzo discussed her father’s death on CBS This Morning.
“I kind of really 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,” Lizzo told CBS This Morning. “I used everything that happened to me and made myself stronger.”
