Especially considering what's been happening in our province, in our country, and around the world over the 365 days plus.

While the verdict is still out on whether or not fairies actually exist, Ali might be the closest we'll get to the real thing seeing as she has created magic that has found its way onto our Instagram timelines.

After being inspired by another COVID-19 parody song written and performed by 5fm Breakfast presenter, Dan Corder, Ali decided to perform her very own acoustic version of the song.

'Get Vaccinated', inspired by Avril Lavigne's hit single, 'Complicated', is an acoustic version that explains why people should get the COVID-19 vaccine jab.

Our favourite lyrics include, "Lockdown could be history, no more curfew misery" and "Just go get a jab and come have fun, COVID done!"

As the vaccine rollout throughout the country continues, more and more people are getting vaccinated every day, but not everyone is super keen on getting vaccinated. Some people need a little bit of a push in the right direction.

Will we be singing this song while waiting in line, while getting our jab, and every other opportunity we have? Yes.
