Washington (ANI): Singer Avril Lavigne is all set to represent her native Canada by being an ambassador at China's World expo in 2010. The singer, who was born in Ontario, is much famous in Asia and has even recorded portions of her hit songs in Mandarin.
By traveling to Shanghai, China to represent her home country, she will help bridge the gap between eastern and western cultures. "On Friday (24Apr09), I was in Vancouver and honoured as the Canadian Ambassador for 2010 World Expo, Shanghai, China," Contactmusic quoted Lavigne, as stating on her MySpace blog.
"It's really exciting as it's the first time China has ever hosted World Expo and the theme is Better City, Better Life. It's really cool that over 200 countries and international organizations are coming together at World Expo, Shanghai to create a better future for the world. I've played two shows in Shanghai. It's a great city and I look forward to visiting again next year," Lavigne added.
