Canadian singer Avril Lavigne has released a single to support the 2015 Special Olympics World Games taking place in Los Angeles this summer.
The single, called “Fly,” is a moving tribute to the games, overcoming challenges and the human potential for greatness. The video features footage from Special Olympics events and proceeds from the single will help the Avril Lavigne Foundation support the summer games. (excerpt from The Mighty post here )
I love the lyrics and hope that it brings funds for Avril’s Foundation. Just look at those incredible athletes! One day I hope to see my sweet, brave Corrigan in the Special Olympics games.
This song is for you, Corrigan. And for all who have the desire to soar!
A little happy is all it ever takes
Somebody else just tell you that it’s worth fighting
A single step becomes a leap a faith
That’s when you realize just starting flying
So, don’t you ever say you’re giving up?
No, there’s no looking back… cause we are all meant to fly
Don’t you ever give up, my boy. We all believe in you!
