The Drop: Avril Lavigne
Sep 5 , 2019 Doors: 7 p.m. Show: 7:30PM
Following the release of her latest album, Head Above Water, Avril Lavigine will visit the GRAMMY Museum for an intimate conversation moderated by Scott Goldman, followed by a performance. Over the course of nearly two decades, Avril Lavigne’s global sales have eclipsed 40 million albums and 50 million singles with five albums bowing in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200 and two at #1. Among countless accolades, she garnered eight GRAMMY Award nominations and took home eight Juno Awards. She stands out as “one of the Soundscan-era’s top-selling artists releasing albums in the U.S.” and “third best-selling Canadian female artist of all-time.” Billboard placed her in the Top 10 of its “Best of the 2000s” chart. Lavigne also set the Guinness World Record as “the youngest female solo artist to top the UK chart” and made history with “Girlfriend”—which became the “first music video to reach 100 million views on YouTube.” In her new album, Head Above Water, released in February 2019, the singer-songwriter holds nothing back, as she sings about her battle with Lyme Disease. She details each trial and tribulation from a perspective of triumph and emerges stronger than ever before.
