Olivia Rodrigo is doing a huge honor for one of her musical heroes. On September 24, she will induct Alanis Morissette into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Rodrigo won't be the only artist paying their respects to Morissette. Billboard reports Alessia Cara and JP Saxe will perform some of Morissette’s most beloved songs along with Ruby Waters during the induction ceremony.
“I remember hearing Alanis for the first time when I was about 13. I was in the car with my parents when Jagged Little Pill came on,” Rodrigo said in a statement about the galvanizing impact of Morissette’s music on her. “I heard ‘Perfect,’ I was like, ‘Oh, my God… You can write songs like that?’ I just looked at music and songwriting in a completely different way.”
Rodrigo and Morissette first teamed up for the cover of Rolling Stones’ “Musicians on Musicians” series in October 2021. Then, in May of this year, Rodrigo surprised fans at her Sour Tour stop at L.A.’s Greek Theater by bringing Alanis out for a duet of “You Oughta Know.”
The induction ceremony will be hosted by singer/songwriter Marie-Mai and is set to take place at Massey Hall in Toronto. The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame will also be holding induction ceremonies for Bryan Adams, four-time Juno Award-winning songwriter Jim Vallance (Bryan Adams, Aerosmith), songwriter David Foster (Celine Dion, Whitney Houston) and and beloved singer/songwriter Daniel Lavoie (“Ils s’aiment”).
Previously announced performers for the night’s event include Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger and Ryan Peake, Corey Hart, Jessie Reyez, Charlotte Cardin, Serena Ryder, Deborah Cox, Chicago’s Neil Donell, Pierre Lapointe, Maurice Moore, Bobby Bazini, Clerel, Bruno Pelletier, and Marie-Mai who will also host the Gala broadcast by SiriusXM.
