(Web Desk) – Arvil Lavigne is a famous Canadian singer who sang the anthem of the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019, convening from 14 to 21 March.
The artist who herself battled against Lyme disease knows well what suffering is, singing at the ceremony for the intellectually disabled is something that is close to her heart.
Lavigne also runs a foundation, to help out others going through the Lyme disease. Her song Head above water was written while in bed, during her recovery from the disease.
Avril was super excited to be a part of the special Olympics in a bid to unify the world and not look down upon the differently abled, as everyone goes through their own battle to reach their own destiny.
It was such an honor performing the new @specialolympics anthem with @luisfonsi and many other incredible musicians at the Special Olympics @worldgamesad Opening Ceremonies! Good luck everyone #MeetTheDetermined pic.twitter.com/fm1xZrPijG
