Recently, Avril Lavigne was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Along with the song’s powerful lyrics, she sang such a worshipful performance bring the presence of God to national television in America. Her performance in this video gives us goosebumps!
Everyone was blown away when Avril launched her newest album after five long years of break. Far from the “Pop Punk Princess” she used to be known as, a new, more spiritual Avril has dethroned the old image. Her new single, “Head Above Water” has deeply Christian undertones.
Avril received various reactions from her fans. Some wanted the old Avril back, and some were encouraging of her new sound.
One fan commented on the ‘Head Above Water’ official music video on YouTube:
“AVRIL! I WANT YOU TO READ THIS MESSAGE! PLEASE! BRING BACK YOUR OLD STYLE PLEASE! THE NEW MUSIC HERE IN 2017-2018 IS DEAD! WE NEeD YOU TO SAVE OUR EARS 🖤 🖤 I LOVE YOU AVRIL! I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU.”
Another fan wrote, showing her undying support for Avril’s transformation:
“This is a grown-up, mature, and powerful Avril that we have never seen before. When her music before was punky and playful and in the season of wild teenhood, this new Avril has emerged as a woman. The landscape of black sand, dark green cliffs against her pale character signifies that she has overcome her darkness and is fighting back… This is a magnificent piece of work.”
Avril sure is helping a lot of people get through their darkest times by pointing them to God. She may have changed, but we think it’s for the Glory of God. We pray she continues to seek after God.
