Superstar Dua Lipa attended the opening of the first Albanian language school in Texas while touring the Lone Star State last weekend. According to her Instagram story, the “Don’t Start Now” singer visited the Albanian American Cultural Center in Lewisville before performing in Dallas on Sunday, March 13.

Lipa wrote in her Instagram story that the center promotes Albanian culture, art and music, while offering language lessons for children aged 5 to 15. Lipa delivered a speech at the inauguration ceremony, according to a tweet from Dua Lipa Hungary.

“It’s such a pleasure to be here for your school opening and to celebrate today with you,” Lipa said.

When Lipa first heard about the center she said it took her back to her own childhood and the two worlds she lived in between London and Pristina. Lipa was born in London and her Albanian parents hail from Pristina, FR Yugoslavia (now Kosovo).

“When I was in London during the day, I went to school and spoke English with my teachers and friends,” Lipa said. “At night, I spoke Albanian with my family who made sure to answer me in Albanian so that I didn’t forget my roots and my language.”

Before heading to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Lipa was in Houston for his tour. She made stops at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and restaurants like Nancy’s Hustle while in town.
