AVRIL TO PERFORM "FLY" FOR THE FIRST TIME, JULY 25

Wonder, Lavigne to open Special Olympics

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Stevie Wonder, Cody Simpson and Avril Lavigne are some of the stars who will perform during next month's opening ceremony of the Special Olympics World Games, organizers announced Thursday.

The July 25 ceremony will also feature appearances by actress Eva Longoria, comedian/talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and athletes Yao Ming and Michael Phelps, in a show created by the production company that crafted the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in London and Sochi.

Lavigne, who recently revealed she's been ill with Lyme Disease, is planning to perform her song Fly publicly for the first time at the ceremony, which will be held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Lavigne said on Twitter Wednesday that proceeds of sales of Fly will benefit the Special Olympics.

ABILITY MAGAZINE INTERVIEW

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Avril Lavigne has sold more 35 million records worldwide. Her songs “Complicated” and “Girlfriend” rank among Billboard’s Hot 100 singles of the decade. Raised two hours east of Toronto, Canada, she signed a music deal at 17, and recently launched the Avril Lavigne Foundation R.O.C.K.S. to promote Respect, Opportunity, Choices, Knowledge, and Strength in young people with serious illnesses or disabilities. ABILITY’s Lia Martirosyan caught up with her recently.

Lia Martirosyan: What motivated you to start a foundation?

Avril Lavigne: Since the beginning of my career, the Make-A-Wish Foundation would tell me there were people who wanted to meet me, so I would go to hospitals and see people who were sick or had a disability. It was very moving, and made me want to start my own foundation. I launched it in 2010. Every year, for my birthday, we have a fundraising campaign. And last year, for my 30th, we raised money for 30 athletes to go to Special Olympics (SO).

Martirosyan: That’s exciting.

Lavigne: It is. I’ve done programs where I’ve partnered with Easter Seals and sent a bunch of kids to camp. When I visited them, they were so happy that I thought, “Oh, my God, I have to get involved!” Our latest, greatest partnership is with SO, because we share a similar mission. I wrote the inspirational song, “Fly,” a couple of years ago for my foundation; it’s about lifting people up, and telling them not to give up, no matter how hard things get. On iTunes, all the proceeds from it now go to SO. I also shot a video for it, and the athletes are the stars. We’re in talks about me doing a performance at the SO World Games in Los Angeles.

"Fly"

There’s a light inside of all of us
It’s never hiding you just have to light it
It’s the one thing that you gotta trust
It’s like a diamond you just have to find it

So if you ever feel like giving up
yeah just remember that

CHORUS:
We were all meant to fly
Spread your wings across the universe
It’s your time to, it’s your time to shine
There’s a light inside of all of us
Soon you’ll find that
It’s your time to fly, your time to fly

A little help is all it ever takes
Somebody else to tell you it’s worth fighting
A single step becomes a leap of faith
That’s when you realize you’ve started flyin’

So don’t you ever say you’re giving up
No there’s no looking back

CHORUS

Just reach up, don’t give up
Until you’ve touched the sky
Just reach up, don’t give up
Until you realize

That we were all meant to fly
Spread your wings across the universe
It’s your time to, it’s your time to shine
There’s a light inside of all of us
Soon you’ll find that
It’s your time to fly, fly
It’s your time to
It’s your time to shine, shine
Soon you’ll find that
It’s your time to fly, fly (spread your wings across the universe)
It’s your time to
It’s your time to shine, shine (there’s a light inside of all of us)
Soon you’ll find that
It’s your time to fly
