'Head Above Water' - Avril Lavigne Live Performance

Singer / Songwriter Avril Lavigne performs her celebrated single ‘Head Above Water’ live on Honda Stage at Henson Recording Studios. After a five-year medically-forced hiatus due to Lyme Disease, Avril has returned to the music scene.


In this unexpected song from the 34-year-old Canadian singer, Avril leans on her faith and begs God to sustain her in her darkest moment. This talented musician shares that her battle with Lyme had gotten so severe she truly thought that she was going to die. It was there that she found a renewed moment of faith and a new song of encouragement for herself and others.

“God, keep my head above water
Don't let me drown, it gets harder
I'll meet you there at the altar
As I fall down to my knees
Don't let me drown, drown, drown”

“Head Above Water” is a beautiful piano ballad that allows the lyrics to shine through in a beautiful story. This is such a personal song and a true anthem for those fighting battles. Sometimes, we need a reminder, that at the end of the fight, only God can step in and save us. These powerful lyrics truly give us a renewed sense of hope and strength.

“So pull me up from down below
'Cause I'm underneath the undertow
Come dry me off and hold me close
I need you now, I need you most”

This live performance gives new life to this incredible song. What a beautiful visual of the Father seeking us out when we call on Him!
