Avril Lavigne’s career highlights
Lavigne grew up in Ontario, Canada. She had wanted to be a singer since a young age, and her parents recognized her musical talent.
“My mom said when I was 2, I came back from church singing ‘Jesus Loves Me,’ and she said that she knew I was going to be a singer then. She called me her little songbird. So, yeah, I always wanted to be a singer,” Lavigne told Bang Showbiz (per Digital Spy).
Lavigne also learned how to play instruments and began writing music. When she was a teenager, she drew the attention of music execs and signed with L.A. Reid to his then-company Arista Records.
Lavigne’s debut album, Let Go, was released in 2002 when she was only 17. It became an instant success, spawning singles such as “Complicated,” “Sk8er Boi,” and “I’m With You.” The songs put Lavigne on the map as a pop-punk princess.
In 2004, she released her second album, Under My Skin, which charted at number one on the Billboard 200 and sold 10 million copies. The album is best known for the hits “Don’t Tell Me,” “My Happy Ending,” and “Nobody’s Home.”
Lavigne continued to release singles, including “Keep Holding On,” “Girlfriend,” “What the Hell,” and “Here’s to Never Growing Up.”
Although she hasn’t charted as high as before, she hasn’t disappeared. She released her latest album, Love Sux, in February 2022. It landed at number nine on the Billboard 200.
The singer’s work has earned her over 100 awards, including Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards. Lavigne has also earned eight Grammy nominations.
