Avril Lavigne’s new single “Fly” hits the hearts of many as it gives special support to the Special Olympics. Lavigne debuted her song on ABC’s Good Morning America and is exclusively available on iTunes. The video features Lavigne with various videos of Special Olympics athletes from all over the world.

“I wanted the athletes to be the stars of the video and, just like the message of the song, to show the world that they can overcome the challenges and that everyone is meant to shine,” she said on ABC.

She announced that all the net proceeds earned from the song will go to the Special Olympics.

“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,” She says on the energy behind the single.

Avril created her own Foundation that supported the Special Olympics in September 2014. She also raised funds for her 30th birthday for the 2015 Special Olympics that will be held in Los Angeles.

“Fly” was co-written with husband Chad Kroeger to ensure her personal story was involved.

“It’s just about inner strength and courage. This song took on a whole new meaning for me while I was sick, which was pretty magical,” Avril confesses, referring to her battle with Lymes disease.

The singer first saw signs of her illness during her tour last spring.

“I went from doctor to doctor for about eight months until I found somebody that had the knowledge of Lyme disease and the experience of treating it. I actually knew I had it the whole time, probably since the summer, and was just up against a lot of doctors telling me, ‘You’re crazy.’”

Being bedridden for five months she had the extra time to produce the creative energy to create this heart wrenching song.

The new single will be featured at the Special Olympics’ first-ever Unified Relay Across America by Bank of America event where more than 20,000 participants will carry the Flame of Hope to Los Angeles over the course of 46 days to the Special Olympics World Game.
