“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.”

Michelle Obama just lifted a 40-year ban of taking photos during White House tours!
“If you’ve been on a White House tour, you may have seen this sign,” the First Lady says in a new video, and holds up the sign that says no photos. “Well, not anymore.”
The First Lady then rips the sign in half! You can now take selfies during White House tours!
“Big news! Starting today, we’re lifting the ban on cameras and photos on the @WhiteHouse public tour. Visitors are now able to take photos and keep those memories for a lifetime! 📷 To learn how to schedule a tour with your friends and family, visit whitehouse.gov.” the caption to the video says.
