Pop funk princess Avril Lavigne debuted her brand new single ‘Fly’ in benefit of this year’s Special Olympics.
Co-written with Chad Kroeger and David Hodges, Lavigne shares what this song means to her.
“This song means a lot to me personally. It is inspired by the many young people I’ve met throughout my work with my Foundation. They pursue their dreams no matter what obstacles they face. Special Olympics’ mission is to unleash the human spirit through the transformative power and joy of sports, so they’re a natural fit for this song.”
Lavigne also described the song as being about ‘inner strength and courage’ after she revealed her struggle against Lyme disease which made her bedridden for months.
Directed by Avril Lavigne and Robb Dipple, the music video uploaded on her official Vevo account has already reached more than 1 million views since its release on April 16.
‘Fly’ has been released as a digital single and net proceeds from sales will go to benefit Special Olympics.
