Lizzo Strikes Again! See How The Singer-Turned-Do-Gooder Thanked Front Line Workers
This isn't the first time the 'Truth Hurts' singer showed her support for hospital workers across the country – and something tells us it won't be the last!
With coronavirus cases on the rise in some parts of the country, doctors and nurses are being stretched to their limits when tending to infected patients in their communities.
Thankfully, some folks are stepping up to make sure front line workers are being taken care of as they fight the virus that has taken over 138,000 lives in the United States since early March.
Grammy winning recording artist and good deeds addict Lizzo recently bought lunch for hospital workers in areas that are experiencing surges in Covid-19 cases, including Baptist Memorial Hospital in Mississippi and Dignity Health Medical Center in Chandler, AZ.
The "Good As Hell" singer addressed the workers in a video message where she thanked them for all of their hard work.
"You guys are really putting yourselves out there on the front lines, so the least I could do was give you guys some lunch," she said in the message. "I hope that ya'll enjoy the food, and I hope it puts a smile on your face."

This isn't the first time the singer has purchased meals for hospital workers. In March, she bought lunch for ER staff members in Detroit, MI and her hometown of Minneapolis, MN.
Not only is the Prince protégé-turned-pop star bringing cheer to front line workers across the country, but she's helping small restaurants get a much-needed boost during a time when business has slowed considerably.

Salma Ortiz, the manager of Dilly's Sandwiches in Tempe, AZ, told The Arizona Republic they were overjoyed when they got the order for 75 lunches and a note that read, "Tell them it's from Lizzo."
"We're such a tiny place I don't know how she found us," Ortiz said. "We really appreciate that she ordered from us and we were able to this."
Hospital staff shared photos of the singer's kind deed on social media with notes of appreciation.
