Bay Area Students Gain National Spotlight

Second graders at Los Medanos Elementary School are now in the national spotlight after a video of them being inspired by singer Lizzo's 'Truth Hurts' went viral.

Teacher Dorothy Mallari, changed the lyrics to Lizzo's hit song "Truth Hurts" and taught it to the kids. The song is to help the students start everyday with positive energy. Mrs. Mallari altered lines of the song to: "Let's be great, 'cuz I know we are great," and "I just took an ELA test, turns out I'm 100 percent that smart." Other lyrics focus on helping other students and how to be a good friend.

The song went viral after it was posted on Pittsburg Unified School District's Facebook page but then Good Morning America caught wind of the video and showed up at Los Medanos to speak with the students, Mrs. Mallari, and to give them all a big surprise from Lizzo herself!!
