Avril Lavigne

Avril Ramona Lavigne (born September 27, 1984) is a Canadian singer-songwriter who is well known for her "skater punk" persona. Her two albums to date, Let Go (2002) and Under My Skin (2004), have topped the charts in numerous countries, yielding four top ten singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Born in Ontario, Canada, to conservative Franco-Ontarian Christian parents John and Judy Lavigne, Avril grew up in Napanee, where she sang country music and in a church choir and taught herself to play guitar.

She was discovered by her first professional manager while singing country covers at a Chapters bookstore in Kingston, Ontario. By the age of sixteen, she was signed by Ken Krongard, the artists-and-repertoirte (A&R) representative of Arista Records, who invited his boss, Arista head Antonio "L.A." Reid, to hear her sing in a New York City studio. She then completed work on her first album.
