Born in sleepy Napanee, Ontario in 1984, Avril Lavigne displayed her musical gifts by age 2. She quickly found an audience by singing in church choirs and at county fairs, where she covered country artists like Garth Brooks and The Chicks.

In 1999, Lavigne won a radio contest where she got to sing on stage with Shania Twain at an Ottawa concert in front of 20,000 people. She impressed the audience and said she wanted to become a singer. She didn’t have to wait long.

After a 15-minute audition for music executive L.A. Reid, Lavigne was offered a two-album deal with Arista Records, reportedly worth over $1.25 million.

Her first album, Let Go, was certified platinum quickly and has sold over 16 million copies. The “Sk8er Boi” singer continued releasing albums, including 2004’s Under My Skin and 2007’s The Best Damn Thing, every few years until 2013.
