Lizzo shared a stunning cover of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” on TikTok to celebrate Juneteenth today (June 19.)
The “About Damn Time” singer is seen wearing an eye-catching pink outfit as she shows off her vocal chops in the video with an acapella cover. The track has been dubbed “the black national anthem”. “Happy June 16! Lizzo wrote in the caption, alongside a link to her website where she hosts her “Third Annual Juneteenth Giveback.” Fans gushed about her voice in the comments:

Lizzo said of her next album Special which comes out July 15, “I think people are going to be really surprised at how many love songs there are on this album.” So far, two singles have been released: “About Damn Time” and “Grrrls”. That’s not all there is to look forward to if you’re a Lizzo fan, though — it was recently announced that the singer is set to premiere a documentary on HBO Max this fall.
