Lizzo saw the cute clip of the students singing her tune in their classroom and decided to follow-up with a sweet message for her young fanbase.

“Hey kids, It’s Lizzo. I saw the wonderful video that y’all made. Your teacher is very cool,” Lizzo said in her message, that aired on Good Morning America. “I wanna thank you so much for supporting me and I wanna let you know that you are 100% the future.”

She kindly added: “You’re so bright and so beautiful and so talented so keep it up and I hope to see y’all one day,” she said. “I wanna drop in on your class so hopefully we can make that happen. In the meantime, stay bright.”
