Demi Lovato helps Lyft celebrate half a billion in tips for drivers

Earlier today, on-demand transportation company Lyft celebrated a huge milestone – their drivers have now received over half a billion dollars in tips.

Many Lyft workers are also budding musicians who drive for the company in order to raise funds to fulfil their passion. Recognising this fact, Lyft has teamed up with Demi Lovato to surprise four of their musical drivers with the ultimate tip – free studio time and tickets to Demi’s tour.

Last month, the unsuspecting drivers were selected to audition for a Lyft commercial through a call out to Miami-based drivers who are also musicians. However, whilst the drivers thought they would be auditioning for the company’s executives, they were actually greeted with Demi Lovato instead. Talk about a surprise of a lifetime!

Check out the four drivers’ adorable reactions below.

Speaking about the surprise, Demi said: “I was inspired by the four amazing Lyft drivers and am so lucky to have had the chance to get to know their personal journeys and make it that much easier for them to pursue their love of music. It’s always been important for me to use my platform to help and inspire others, and giving these talented Lyft drivers the opportunity to continue to make music and encourage them to follow their dreams meant the world to me.”

This isn’t the first time that Demi has collaborated with Lyft. Back in 2016, she took part in Undercover Lyft which saw her go undercover as a driver and have some hilarious fun with members of the public.
