Avril + Friends’ was a hit. Thanks to the wonderful fans, October 24th was a day to be remembered in the Lyme Community. Hosted by Wilmer Valderrama, there were a ton of stellar appearances and performances. Not only that, but everyone came together for a unique PSA. October 27th was the last day to watch the performance if you bought the tix!

Avril + Friends’
OneRepublic, Alessia Cara, and Rob Thomas performed as well as the amazing Avril herself. Special appearances from Bebe Rexha, Chad Kroeger, Elena Delle Donne, Marisol Thomas, and Shania Twain were also on the menu for the evening; it was a spectacular event. Welcome to a party, did you enjoy yourself?
Rob gets down deep talking about music and its relation to struggles with illness and expressing feelings. Sometimes the right words can only come in a song, and we love him for it. The angel, of course, had to sing the song we hurt for, ‘Her Diamonds.’ We’re blessed to hear it over and over, especially for such a good cause!
This sweetheart has all the love to give to Avril and the Lyme Community. We were stoked to hear her perform, let alone an acoustic? Our hearts were fluttering, and we hope yours were too.
“You don’t know what you got til it’s gone.” Such beautiful yet heartbreaking lyrics. We won’t lie; we teared up a bit. Call us saps, but the mood of it all just came washing down. Performance after performance, people are coming together for a beautiful cause with a universal love of music.
Miss Avril Lavigne busts out the classic ‘Girlfriend,’ giving us a little light in these strange times. Yes, pandemic. Yes, Lyme Disease. But we are all humans coming together to fight and to raise awareness. This is a celebration with friends and fans, so we hope you had a little bit of fun.
“Thanks so much to all the fans for donating in support of the Lyme community. We’re so grateful for your generosity and continued support.
