Former UH student Lizzo was spotted Friday afternoon at TDECU Stadium entering the Winston Band Complex.

Lizzo, born Melissa Vivaine Jefferson, went to the University and majored in classical flute performance. During her time at the University, Lizzo was a member of the Spirit of Houston marching band, where she played the piccolo. The Detrioter-turned-Houstonian once told NPR she was “the baddest piccolo in the land.”

The 31-year-old became widely known for her sleeper hit “Truth Hurts,” originally released in 2017, before peaking at number No. 4 in early July on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Correction: A previous version of this story misstated that Lizzo graduated from UH.
