Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne looked radiant as she took to the stage at the opening ceremony of the 2015 Special Olympics World Games.

The 30-year-old singer revealed earlier this year she has been diagnosed with Lyme disease, a bacterial infection that if left untreated causes severe joint pain and extreme tiredness.
Avril looked beautiful in a floor-length, sleeveless black sparkling gown as she performed her song Fly in front of the crowd at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

She later wrote on Instagram: “This was a very beautiful night for me.
“It has been a difficult year fighting through Lyme Disease for me and I am so happy to have made it on stage tonight for the first performance in a year. Thank you for having me and please enjoy my song Fly. I wrote this song to encourage people who are facing challenges, to encourage strength and to empower.”
