Lizzo buys lunch for UW Medical Center staff as hospitals are overwhelmed with potential coronavirus patients.

The “Juice” singer, 31, sent lunch to the ER staff at a number of hospitals, including a University of Minnesota affiliate in Minneapolis, where Lizzo first started her singing career, the Seattle Times is reporting.

Singer Lizzo buys lunch for staffs at multiple hospitals

“She sent several hospitals food that were hit really hard for staff working around the clock,” her publicist told the Times via email. “She is planning to send food to more hospitals as well.”

While Lizzo’s tab-grabbing move shows her appreciation for health care workers, it was her doctor who purportedly kept her from making her last Seattle date. The genre-fluid artist was slated to be one of the biggest acts at last year’s Bumbershoot, though her doctor recommended she avoid flying after developing a severe sinus infection. Lizzo’s last-minute cancellation was a bit of an opening day bummer for the ailing festival, although earlier that summer she rocked Capitol Hill Block Party in front of around 10,000 fans.

Aside from singing and rapping, Lizzo is also an actress; she served as a voice performer in the animated film UglyDolls (2019) and appeared in the crime comedy-drama film Hustlers (2019). In 2019, Time named Lizzo as "Entertainer of the Year" for her meteoric rise and contribution to music.
