Avril Lavigne brought a little cheer to sick youngsters in Los Angeles on Thursday by singing with patients at a children's hospital.

The Sk8er Boi hitmaker visited Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA and toured the wards meeting ill kids before putting on an impromptu performance with them.

In a post on her Twitter page, she wrote, "Just left Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA Health ... inspiring to meet & play music w/ (with) kids. We’ve got fun plans coming up."
