Avril Lavigne was bornon 27 September 1984 in Belleville, Canadian, French. Avril Lavigne came to limelight at a very young age and was signed by Arista records when she turned 16. Her grungy pop-rock sound appealed to teens worldwide. The skater-girl combat trousers and unique look made her extremely popular with the American teens, who associated themselves with her. Best known for mixing Rock, Punk and a rebellious style, she appeared on stage along with Shania Twain as part of an award ceremony and grabbed attention. She also caught the eye of Peter Zizzo, an American songwriter/producer with her home video that featured her singing karaoke. Upon his invitation, this young talent joined him on a song writing trip to New York. Lavigne’s music career catapulted with her debut album ‘Let Go’ and she successfully established herself in the world of music with her sparkling performance. She earned great popularity and was consequently signed by Arista Records. This proved to be a huge boost to her music career, and soon mass appreciation followed and her dream of becoming a music sensation was within eyeshot. She enchanted the music loving audience with her second album ‘Under My Skin’, which went on to top the US Billboard. With her third album ‘The Best Damn Thing’ she proved she was here to stay and established her name with chart bursting scores.
