Avril Lavigne Makes a Triumphant Return to the Stage! (Video)

Avril Lavigne takes to the stage to perform at the 2015 Special Olympics World Games opening ceremony on Saturday (July 25) in Los Angeles.

The 30-year-old singer performed her new single “Fly” in her first appearance on stage since revealing her battle with Lyme disease.

Other stars taking to the stage included Nicole Scherzinger, Eva Longoria, Stevie Wonder, Maria Shriver, and First Lady Michelle Obama.

“Honored to have performed my song Fly at the opening ceremony for the Special Olympics tonight. All proceeds go to support the Special Olympics,” Avril wrote on her Instagram account. “This was a very beautiful night for me. Congratulations to all the athletes. Thank you to everyone who supports the Avril Lavigne Foundation. It has been a difficult year fighting through Lyme Disease for me and I am so happy to have made it on stage tonight for the first performance in a year. Thank you for having me and please enjoy my song Fly. I wrote this song to encourage people who are facing challenges, to encourage strength and to empower. Xoxo.”
