A US university marching band covered Lizzo’s ‘Truth Hurts’, and made the world a much better place.
Lizzo – the viral hip-hop artist whose message of self-love brings joy to millions – is also a classically trained flautist and self-professed ‘band geek’.
And Lizzo would presumably be delighted to know that university bands are now covering her songs.
At halftime during the Temple vs. Georgia Tech football game, the Temple University Diamond Marching Band performed a selection of Lizzo’s songs, including the iconic ‘Truth Hurts’ and ‘Juice’.
Will Hulcher, a band member and Temple University Music Education major, said: “I believe that the youth should see this video for an inspiration to play the flute because of how incredible the flute feature is and the love and respect it gets from the crowd.”
The sight of a sea of brass-playing students marching in time to Lizzo is just wonderful.
